Testing the downloaded file

To check if the download was successful, you should check the MD5 checksum of the file. Type md5sum path/to/file. md5sum is available at md5deep. This is an improved version. Here are the binary for Win32, and the sources for Linux.

sha1sum is a more secure than md5sum to hash files. This program is a part of coreutils for linux and there is also sha1sum.exe for win32.

Writing the ISO image file to a CD:

On linux use wodim or cdrecord. First: cdrecord -scanbus to get the identifier numbers of your device.

Then: cdrecord dev=x,y,z -v systemrescuecd-x86-x.y.z.iso in a console.

On Windows use software such as Nero or download ImgBurn which is free.

Installation on an USB stick

If you are interested in installing SystemRescueCd on an USB stick, you have to download the CD-ROM version of the rescue disk, and copy several files yourself, as explained in the manual. Thus, there is only one file to download for both CD-ROM and USB versions of SystemRescueCd.

Online documentation

Reading the Quick Start Guide is recommended if it's the first time you use SystemRescueCd. It's also available in German, French, Spanish, Italian. You can also be interested in the Complete documentation for more details.
