Hi:

Does a stock OS X install burn .iso's to DVD, or do I need something else to do that? If so, anything free available?

Hmmm... that is exactly what I am doing!!!! I think I am going to grab Parellels and pop it on my iMac first, just to see it. Did you put it on a Mac, or a PC ? How did it go for you?

its beuatiful. I think its ready for release. Ran great on my 15"mbp 128mb. Heard it runs good under parralles. One issue i do have is while its a good os, the rest of the world doesn't suport it yet, and i will likely be reinstalling it in 6mos to a year.

Thanks for recommending Burn. I needed something to burn Divx discs, and I absolutely hate Toast.

There's also Disk Utility.

Drag the .iso file to DU's left hand side panel and click Burn. You don't need to mount the image first, in fact some images will be borked if you do so.

Disk Utility works great with .iso files. It's incredibly easy, and like a lot of other Apple software... just works.

I'd imagine that if Disk Utility didn't give you an error with the process, it worked. If you followed the steps above (drag the file into Disk Utility, and click burn), it should have worked just fine.

I was wondering if there was a specific way to burn games onto a dvd disc in order to replace the original? Or is it so simple i just drag and drop then burn?
