Creating CD's

Hey all...

I just did the install of 10.0 official doing a network install from one of the ftp mirrors which took all night. Is there a way I can tell it to create the CD's for me so if I need to re-install I don't have to do that again? I thought doing mkcd, but that didn't seem to work.

Thanks much

I don't think you can since the source files were probably removed after installation... I would try yo download the ISO files and burn CDs from those.

I did download some ISO's, but I don't think that they were any good. I tried to burn the images with Nero which said that my CDR's didn't have enough free space to burn them (700 mb CD's, and the ISO's were only +/- 695 mb each - don't know what that was about). And the official mirros don't have them in ISO yet. Maybe I will just wait until they put out the ISO's on the mirrors, or better yet, maybe I'll just purchase the powerpack and support Mandrake....
