Unhappy burn bootable image from iso using RedHat 8


I want to make a boot-able disk from an ISO image I downloaded. I downloaded it into my Red Hat home directory.

I would like to burn it using a linux program.

What do I use?

I have done it many times using Windows, but I am trying to learn linux and want to avoid the Windows conundrum if possible.

I could transfer the image to Window if I have to, but don't know how to do this from Red Hat. Both boxes are on the same switch.

cdrdao will do a disc at once copy from the commandline:
cdrdao copy --datafile /tmp/cdrecord.bin --speed 8

You can also use X-cdroast if you want a GUI (pretty simple to use)

I believe it will copy a cd, but I want to burn a downloaded iso image. I don't want to copy the iso so I have another iso, I want it to be bootable. Winblows programs apparently execute the iso image and expand it, then the program copies those sets of files.

yes, that's what rockdw was saying, made perfect sense.

personally I would use...

[code]cdrecord dev=0,0,0 speed=48 -v image.iso[code]

(and i'd personally NEVER use xcdroast. eroaster or *anything* is much better)

you can't just set a cdrom to be bootable or not, that information is INSIDE the image file you already have.

you should probably also use
cdrecord -scanbus
to get the dev info, too.

I had this very problem two days ago.

I fist ran cdrecord --scanbus

This gave me the device info i.e 0,3,0- or 0,2,0 etc....

the I did

cdrecord speed=8 dev=0,2,0 /dkjhldkjh/*,iso

then it burnt the iso.

i mounted the CDrom and checked the directory and hey preto I ahd all the directories etc.. that I was wanting.
