Formatting a cd
i wanna instal android on iphone

and for ubuntuu u need a blank disk.
i dont have blank disk
but i have a lot of disks
so i try to format it and it says it is protected.
so how do i format it even though its protected

You can't. The only discs that can be wiped clean are CD-RW and that is only if they did not get write protected on the last burn.

I think you can boot Ubuntu from a USB stick. I know Mandriva can be. Also you may look into running the iso from a virtual drive by using Daemontools. I'm not sure it would work if the system has to do a reboot during install.
You will like Ubuntu. It is a great flavor of linux!

I have never tried virtual box. Daemontools works for me. The free version is very sufficient.
