Actually I posted here about where I could upload the 4.6GB DVD I had made using multicd-4.4.sh and make_iso.sh, I got basically negative responses because who wants to host a 4.6GB file and most poster's thought it was a fruitless idea-but it would save a newbie from having to burn multiple cd's and it would help them learn about how a cd image is put together. My DVD contains these distro's from multicd.sh
1-Ubuntu 8.04 desktop
2-Debian Lenny Netinstall
3-Fedora 10 netinstall
13-a custom slax build heavy with dev tools and stuff
15-system rescue cd
16-trinity rescue kit
17-Easeus disc copy
This came up to about 2.6GB or something. I wanted to add more to make a complete DVD(4.7GB), but multicd.sh only does so many.
So, I added the slackware 12.2 mini iso netinstall from alien bob, zenwalk 5.2,backtrack3, and slack-mini-server.
The new multicd 4.4 has the slackware 12.2 install because I emailed the author of multicd and showed him everything I had done-though he has not yet added backtrack/zenwalk/or slack-mini-server, maybe he's working on it now.
Anyway-it's kind of a trial and error thing adding different distro's but I am going to try adding some more.
The best way I found to do it is build the iso you want with multicd.sh then as I said extract it and add distro's you want to it, then sew it back into an iso image with make_iso.sh-the run it on Qemu/VMWare to make sure it boots and runs.
tricky part with make_iso.sh is you must put it into the"boot" folder and have an isolinux folder in there too or it won't work.
Not really knowing the terminal commands(i am a newbie too), I used copy/paste, etc to move folders and stuff around-I even use make_iso.sh without the "cd /etc/etc/etc". I just double-click on the make_iso.sh and a box appears that says "run in terminal/display/run", pick run in terminal-the terminal will appear-now you must name your cd/dvd-MAKE SURE THE NAME ENDS WITH ".iso", as in mydvd.iso-because if you just name it mydvd it will make a mydvd.img-which you could install to a usb.
Anyway-make sure you right click on make_iso.sh select properties, select "make executable" before double-clicking it to run in terminal.
If a terminal pops up and disappears quickly then something's wrong-make sure the make_iso.sh is in the "boot" folder and that there is also a isolinux folder in the "boot" folder too. The isolinux folder must contain isolinux.bin, etc.
I'm trying to write the tutorial now-hopefully I can attach some screenshots so it's easier to understand.
In the meantime check out these posts and the screenshots there...
Also, you can get make_iso.sh and other tools from alot of different distros-just download GoblinX-2.7-Micro(100MB)
), extract the iso and inside the "goblinx" folder you will find the "make_iso.sh", you will also see a folder called "tools", this contains some other good stuff.
