Question how to make slackware bootable CD?


ok,

i'm still trying to figure out how to get slack 9.1 working on raid0 array which is using onboard SiL3112 SATA. someone posted on the net that they used ataraid.i from the /slacware-current directory. i already have burned slackware ISO's. I don't have working floppy so i can't make bootable floppy with that image. what im trying to do is to extract all the files from the slack 1 cd, change the new ataraid.i with the old one, and use some burning program to make bootable cd again. can someone help me with that?

i know there's some mskinfo program or something like that even for windows, but i'd like to know if there's any way to make bootable ISO the way I want. any help is appreciated. thanks

open up the iso file of the install disk / make iso file of the install cd.
mount (with loop) the iso file, replace the files, and burn the iso.
have you tried that? (just a suggestion, haven't tried it myself)
