Re: [K12OSN] making a live CD...?



One way to get an image of the CD is to:

dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/path/to/iso/imagfile.iso

This will take an image of a CD from the CDROM and place it wherever you 
specify.

then you can use XCDRoast to burn the iso.  Make sure you write it as a 
track and not a file.  If you write it as a file, you will have ine big 
file on the CD of whatever you named the file.  If you write it as a 
track, you'll have several files but notht efilename of the file you 
wrote.

Hope this helps. . .
