- a CD/DVD (+R, -R, +RW or -RW)
- a CD/DVD burner (a CD burner can only burn CD's, but a DVD burner can burn both)

If you are running Puppy Linux, you can use Pburn to burn an ISO to disk.
1. First, make sure you have a burnable CD/DVD in your disk drive, and that your disk drive is NOT mounted.
2. Run Pburn from the menu. (Menu -> Multimedia -> Pburn)
3. If this is the first time you have used Pburn, it will ask for your disk drive that you wish to use. Select it and click OK.
4. Select "Burn ISO-image" in the top left, and browse to where you downloaded the ISO.
5. Unless, for some reason, you have to have a closed disk, select "Multisession".
6. Click the burn icon in the bottom right.
If you are running Windows, you can use ImgBurn to burn an ISO to disk.
- Run ImgBurn from the start menu.
- Click "Write image file to disk".
- Beside "Please select a file", click the "Browse for a file..." icon (a folder with a magnifying glass) and browse to the ISO you downloaded.
- Select your CD/DVD burner in the drop down menu, and make sure "Verify" is checked.
- Make sure the "Write Speed" is 1x, and "Copies" is 1. (unless you want more then 1 copy)
- Insert a CD or DVD into your drive
- Click "Write" (the big button).
To run Puppy Linux from a Live-CD or Live-DVD:
- Make sure the CD/DVD is in the drive, and that the computer is off.
