I down loaded UNetbootin and installed on a micro SD card in an USB adapter. When I ran the program it asks me to Select Distribution and than gives me a list. Which one should I choose? My operating system is XP.

My favorite for burning CD images in Windows is ImgBurn (http://www.imgburn.com/). It is very reliable and free. Another thing you can do is 'burn' the image to a USB flash drive using UNetbootin (http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/). That's what I did.

It's an image of a CD, which means you need to burn it to the CD as an
image, not just as a file on the CD. I'm sure googling "burn image to cd
in windows" will turn up something useful. I imagine Windows 7 has a way
to do this built-in. Both Linux and MacOS have had this point-and-click
behavior integrated for years, without add-on software.
