Centos bootable ISO using dd


Hi all

Currently i am using centos on vmware. ISO that i downloaded was bootable. Now i want to perform installation on my real system. If i use dd utility to copy iso image to DVD disc, will it also retain its bootable property as well ?

You'll need to burn the iso with growisofs for it to boot correctly.

edit: it seems cdrecord will do just fine: http://fosswire.com/post/2007/11/bur...with-cdrecord/

I just don't think you can directly burn to a cd. A dvd-ram can do it and maybe a udf cd but straight to a cd I think requires other tools.
