Create DVD iso of RH ES 3 CD's


Make you own DVD out of the Red Hat ES CDís


If you already have a copy of the CDís and you would like to create a DVD iso out of them. Here is a way to assist in converting them over. I will only cover creating the DVD out of the four main install CDís
$ = means that your at your prompt.

Create a base directory called DVD. Then inside the DVD directory create the following directories with this command.
$ mkdir redhates{1,2,3,4} redhates-docs
Then place each one of your cdís into the drive and perform the following command for each CD. NOTE: make sure the cd drive is not mounted. If it is, then unmount.
$ dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/dvd/rhes*.iso (*= the number for each CD to each folder)
Once you have all the *.isoís made and sitting in the right folder you will need to open them up so the master DVD iso can be created. Perform the following command
one per folder.
$ mount Ėo ro,loop /dvd/rhes*/rhes*.iso rhes* (*=the number of each ISO folder)
you will now need to move two files from the rhes1 folder to the root DVD folder, perform the following command.
$ cp Ėa rhes1/isolinux rhes1/.discinfo . (yes that is a space and a . after .discinfo)
Now perform a edit on the file .discinfo the forth line down should only show the number 1 Change that to read 1,2,3,4 and save the file. This will now tell the .discinfo file to know that it is looking at 4 cdís in total.
Now the long winded frustrating part. enter the following command in itís entirety.
$ mkisofs -o redhatesdvd.iso -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -R -m TRANS.TBL -x rhes1/.discinfo -x rhes1/isolinux -x rhes2/RedHat/RPMS/openssl-0.9.7a-22.1.i686.rpm -graft-points rhes1 .discinfo=.discinfo isolinux/=isolinux RedHat/=rhes2/RedHat RedHat/=rhes3/RedHat RedHat/=rhes4/RedHat docs/=redhat-docs

The dvd will be created in just a few short minutes. From there burn and enjoy. I did borrow some information from other posts in the past to make the RedHat 8 DVD. But these commands listed above are direct copy and pastes from how I made my DVD of the ES media. I hope this helps those who are looking to combine the CD's.
