install of minix failing (iso9660)

I'm trying to install minix and I'm getting an error that cd9660.kmod module won't load. I tried burning a couple other OSs (OpenBSD, and FreeBSD) with the same burning software (active ISO). None of these will boot but when I try to boot an old burn of an OS, one that I believe I burned with Nero selecting the 9660 Joilet option. it will boot. My question is, do I need to find a way to burn this w/ the ISO9660 file format explicity defined? If that's the case, what software would you recommend? Nero costs money and I don't want to pay for something I'll only use once.

Just do a:

pkg install cdrtools

then;

cdrecord -e -v -dao -driveropts=burnfree -data ./theminixiso.iso

-- should do the trick. Note that it'll burn DVDs even though it's called cdrecord.

In fact often cdrecord theminixfile.iso works just fine here without any other arguments. It may there as well.

Install Xfburn and it's straightforward.

Sorry I may have caused you an extra, wasted disk burn. My memory is coming back on this - I remember now that Minix3 had trouble booting on my AMD machine the last time I tried it. I think the error message was the same as yours. Minix does not have the breadth of hardware support that FreeBSD does. So, you're already on the best OS, and the topic is OT, as SirDice mentioned. ;)
