here you go
I got a couple gifts for ya
this scitp is called make_iso.sh
it is found in linux-live-scripts, slax, and any slax dirivative
place that script in /boot folder, with a isolinux folder in there which must
either click or double-clcik it to invoke, choose run or run in terminal
remembere to make the name end in .iso like mycd.iso
u can also invoke in terminal,
this script is to make a grub-bootable iso
you can edit the name grub.iso to whatever and whatever folder you use instead of GRUB
basically, you need a boot/grub folder with at least stage2 in there
so, just copy all of grub to the boot/grub folder
cp -a /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc/* /wherever/boot/grub folder is
so, just copy and paste those 2 scripts to a new text file and save one as
and the grub one as
I always leave stuff out huh?
short-term memory problems Linus72?
uh...so, lets say you got a folder named "LAB"
on your desktop
inside that folder is your "GRUB" folder for making a grub-iso
this is what the folder LAB would conatin
and then inside the GRUB folder would be
for example with DSL iso
inside the boot folder would be a isolinux folder and a grub folder you put there
which must contain stage2_eltorito
(best just to copy everything from /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc to LAB/GRUB/boot/grub)
