creating .iso file


Hi,

I am using centos 6.4 x86. I have one bootable cd and one external DVD writer. I want to keep the clone of that cd into my local system and i want it to be bootable. what should be the command to achieve this task?
Thanks in advance.

You are aware that 6.4 is unsupported , and has been for the last 5 months
Cent is ONLY supporting the current CentOS 6.5 and the current legacy 5.10

but you can use "dd" to copy the image from the dead and unsupported centos 6.4 cd



but i would recommend using a current centos 6.5 install disk
