Hrmm.. Are you burning the file as an ISO or are you creating a data cd
and placing the ISO on it?  I've never heard of any of those recording
apps but I'm sure they should have an option to write an image or write
an iso file or something to that effect.  You shouldn't have to set any
boot parameters in the burning software as that's all contained in the

I think you're getting to a DOS prompt because you're creating a data cd
with this iso image on it and setting it as bootable.

Subject: Initial installation problem

Hi, I am a beginner and have just started to install m0n0wall using
standard PC (CD-ROM version), but I am facing problems. I downloaded the
cdrom-1.22.iso file and burnt it onto a CD-R, changed the boot sequence
but the computer doesn't boot up correctly. I tried two different CD
burning softwares - CDBurnerXP Pro3 and UltraISO and with each one of
them, I tried both the options - burning bootable as well as
non-bootable CD. With bootable CD, the pc does boot up but gives a DOS
Prompt. I guess the image already has boot files in it, so a
non-bootable CD should work. But that is not happening. (My BIOS boot
sequence was changed right with CD ROM as the 1st boot device)

Any suggestions/solutions? Pl don't mind my ignorance.
