Question How to make a bootable cdrom?


Is there a way for me to make a bootable cd-rom?

I have a cd writer and I downloaded the slackware via the ftp also the diskettes are a terror to work with in the installation procedure. Can I burn bare.i and color.gz to a cdrom? So I wont be dealing with bad blocks and so. How can I make a cdrom slackware bootable?

Thats 2 huge... i have a slow internet connection and i just want to make an alternative to the boot disk and perhaps make a much more stable medium like a CDROM using bare.i and color.gz is this possible?

It's rather hard. You need to make the image yourself (I'd recommend to use cd-rw until it works correctly). There is a guide in Bootdisk-HOWTO available on www.tldp.org
