I have download Linux Mint 13 Mate (32-bit) version. So all screenshots (23 image) were related to this edition. Cinnamon version's installation procedure is same to it. After downloading the LinuxMint13 ISO, burn it in a DVD using any burner software. Then put that DVD in your DVD drive push 'ON' button on casing to start computer. It is a live version. So nothing will change on your harddisk, until you do something yourself. Change BIOS settings to start computer from optical media such CD/DVD.
