    well in the august issue of digit, the dvd which was provided had the
    ISO-image of suse-linux. The iso image size is 700mb while that of the the linux if burned onto a disc would be 1.3gb. Can anyone tell me how such ISO-images with commpresed data can be made.

    The ISO image burned on a CD would also be 700 MB, not 1.3 GB. Remember, a CD can hold only 700 MB ;)

    Dont extract anything from the ISO Image...burn it as it is...If you are using Nero 6, Go to RECORDER>BURN IMAGE>select the image>BURN
    Dats it...
    Enjoy!

    yes Kl@w-24 is right .

    but virtual cd can create an image with compression in its own format

    yes Kl@w-24 a cd may hold 700mb but when i tried to burn of the iso image(700mb) i told u about onto a disc it wouldn't it said that the capacity was not sufficient.
    Also when i loaded the iso image using imagedrive(nero), i found out that the actual size was 1.3gb.
    So what do u have to say now

    Just right click the ISO and burn it with DVD Decryptor. (If you don't have download it. It is just under 1MB).

    happened in my 3 in 1 windows 2003 cd
    the thing is there are 3 os's on it ... but theres is essentially one folder
    yet it gave a size of 3 times the iso file when i checked
    yet it burned on the cd
    i guess it checks the size of all the folders mentioned even if its a repeat ....
    thats the only logical way i could figure out

    In Nero 5.5, how do I do it? If I create a data CD, it will just burn the .iso file and not the image. Nero saves its images as .nrg files and not .iso files :(

    agree with kl@w
    or if ur still skeptical
    use ultraISO ... it has an inbuilt nero burner for the iso's
