Making ISO Image from Ghost.


Does anyone know how to make an ISO image from a Norton Ghost image.

I have a working Linux install of less than 700Mb and I want to be able to burn a CD of that image and run it from that CD.

Anyone have an idea of how to do that?

Have you heard of Knoppix? Go to http://www.knoppix.net/. Knoppix is a bootable Linux environment on a CD. That might be what you are looking for, I might have misinterpreted your question. Otherwise, you are going to need to get software that can burn ISOs. With Linux, you can get away easily, but with Windows, you will have to get Nero. If you can't splurge, try ISO Recorder at http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm.

I have Nero 6, but it will not recognize ghost image files as a native format.

What I am doing is, I have a Red Hat 9.0 minimal install on a 700Mb hard drive running my firewall. I want to be able to burn an exact copy of this install to a CD and run it from there.

Since Windows will not mount the ext3 file system I can't use Nero to create an ISO image to burn to a CD.

If there is a better way to do this I am willing to do it.

Well, you could put it on recordable media, and then do what you need to, updating things as needed, and anything else. You could then try to save things, and if not, format everything. AM I missing the point here?
