How can I make a Customised Bootable CD.
I have a very usefull Floppy Disk, when I boot from it, it boots into a Windows 95 menu, the initial screen has various options including an option to press shift + F5, when this is done it shows the command prompt A:\. I have added various utilities to the floppy myself ie- fdisk, format, chkdisk, efdisk, xcopy, an early Norton Ghost, etc, etc. So I can partition a new hard disk, format it, delete partitions, ghost a disk, etc, etc, very handy. But floppies are becoming obsolete.
I have tried burning the contents of this floppy to a CD, but I can't boot from this CD. I have tried various bootable CD programs from the net, including Ultimate Boot CD, but none of them work very well.
I would like to make a bootable CD that will simply boot any computer with either a --new blank, unpartitioned, unformatted Hard Disk -- a hard disk with Windows, -- a hard disk with a Linux Distro, etc. When booting from this CD, it will boot to a command prompt, enabling me to start any program that I have added to the CD myself, ie fdisk, format, etc, etc.
I would appreciate any info on how to do this, I have tried the net but no luck. Thanks.
