 creating an ISO image???
Author: /dev/null

Good day all!

Sorry for stupid question ;-) but is it possible to make an iso image of current system?

I have a bootable CD with 4.0 RELEASE. I upgraded my system to 4.2 STABLE via cvsup and I'd like to make an iso image of 4.2 STABLE, write it on CD and use it like I use 4.0 RELEASE bootable CD.

Thank you.

mkisofs is a wonderful tool for creating iso filesystems from directories.


be sure to read the man pages, as mkisofs has MANY flags that will have an effect on the resulting iso

it is definitely a must have....
