That won't work...you don't have a copy of the boot sector...

You need to get an ISO and burn the ISO image to DVD. Then you get a bootable DVD.

One possibility to to use a software package like deep-burner to create an ISO from the DVD.

But your best bet is just to download an ISO directly and burn the DVD from there.

Agreed

There are places on the interwebs to download the necessary boot sector, but it takes a bit of technical knowhow with nero to make it bootable. Read about "slipstreaming" service packs into XP. There are a number of tutorials that explain the hows and whys of making the new disk bootable.

But I agree completely with robo on this one, you're way better off downloading a new iso. The best place i've found for linux distros is distrowatch.com.
