make a .iso file


Is there a good program that I can make a .iso or even a .cue and .bin. In Windows I used Clone cd for this. Also can you mount a .iso file the actually use it?

mkisofs is a good program for making iso files. It is a command line program but it works well. Use man mkisofs for more information.

If you have loopback support in your kernel you can mount an iso with the following command:

mount -o loop isofile dir

you can make an iso image of a cdrom with cat or dd too.
cat /dev/cdrom > /image.iso
or
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/image.iso

if the user has access rights to the cdrom drive and they write to a directory where
they have write access, they can do it.
