cdrecord (now cdrtools), specifically mkisofs, and syslinux, for isolinux, is what I use.

Howdy rfrank.


Yep, we need more info.

One tends to use the term "burn" or "write" a cd from some .iso image file. That may be common phrased as make a cd.

Another way to make a cd would be..
To make a boot cd, one would need to have a bit of understanding about cd's and the way tracks on them and the way modern computers work and how linux boots. Much easier to get an already made image of a disk. Image is a clone of a disk. It can't simply be copied as such. You need a cd writer program that knows how to handle a iso image.
