301Another way to check the validity of the downloaded file is to use GnuPG to
302verify the cryptographic signature that we provide (the file ending with
303<path>.asc</path>). Download the signature file and obtain the public key:

300To burn the downloaded ISO(s), you have to select raw-burning. How you 324To burn the downloaded ISO(s), you have to select raw-burning. How you
301do this is highly program-dependent. We will discuss a couple of popular 325do this is highly program-dependent. We will discuss <c>cdrecord</c> and
302tools on how to do this. 326<c>K3B</c> here; more information can be found in our <uri

307 With EasyCD Creator you select <c>File</c>, <c>Record CD
308 from CD image</c>. Then you change the <c>Files of type</c> to <c>ISO image
309 file</c>. Then locate the ISO file and click <c>Open</c>. When you click on
310 <c>Start recording</c> the ISO image will be burned correctly onto the CD-R.
311 </li>
312 <li>
313 With Nero Burning ROM, select <c>File</c>, <c>Burn CD image</c>. Set the
314 type of file to <c>*.*</c> and select the ISO file. Older versions of Nero
315 will tell you they don't recognize the format -- confirm here, it does
316 recognize it but doesn't know it yet :) In the next dialog, set the
317 following parameters:
318 <ul>
319 <li>Type of image: <c>Data Mode 1</c></li>
320 <li>Block size: <c>2048 bytes</c></li>

322 <li>Scrambled: <c>no</c></li>
323 <li>Swapped: <c>no</c></li>
