how to create CD-ROM boot disk


Dear all,

i have linux operating system CD. it is bootable. but i want to create a boot disk. now i can create boot disk on floppy. but i want to make CD as boot disk.

how to do that.

first i created .iso file like this
mkbootdisk --iso --device myimage.iso 2.6.18-194.el5

it created iso named myimage.iso in /
now how will i copy it to cd rom
i am running cdrecord --scanbus

it is showing : this version is an nofficial version with DVD support. and therefore may have bugs that are not present in teh original.
please send bug reports or support requests to http....
the author of cdrecord should not be bothered with problems in this version.
cdrecord: invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'
cdrecord: for possible transport specifirs try 'cdrecord dev=help'.

i am inserting blank CD in the cdrom.

then i run
cdrecord -v -eject speed=16 dev=ATA:1,0,0 myimage.iso

how will i come to know about dev and version information if cdrecord --scanbus is failing above.

i am having laptop. with rhel5 (2.6.18-194.el5)

kindly help

I have always used Brasero CD burner, and never had a problem with it. Maybe you should consider using that, especially given it says

This avoids the problem of having to manually work out the dev and version information

I take an image of the floppy and burn it as track one.

INSTALL is the text file telling you HOW to install it. Type "less INSTALL" to read the instructions
