"Corel download is an ISO file, which means it's a disk image file, which probably means it's useless to you unless you have a CD-ROM burner (i.e., a CD-ROM drive capable of recording data on CD-R disks). If you do have one of these, you can use your CD-ROM software (I used Easy CD Creator, which came with the drive) to create a CD from this ISO file."

"You need a CD because you don't install Corel Linux from within DOS or Windows or whatever your operating system is. Instead, you stick the CD into your CD drive, reboot the computer, and it bypasses your operating system and carries you directly to the Corel Linux installation screen. Note: it bypasses BootMagic too...."

"The icons on the desktop were Trash, My Home, Netscape, and Printer. The taskbar gave me three different groups of options. At the extreme left was one that, when I held the mouse cursor on it, said "Hide the Panel." (I wasn't ready to do that!) Next to that, over there on the left, the taskbar had five icons: Application Starter, Corel File Manager, Console, Text Editor, and Corel Linux Help. On the right end of the taskbar, I had four numbered boxes, which turned out to be four different desktops."
