Create ISO


If I create a distro into an ISO file from the CD, will the ISO be bootable when I burn it to a new cd disc?

I plan to create the ISO using the dd commands. If this is not the best way to do it, can someone tell me how?

Thnx.

Yes. I generally perform:
Code:
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=cdrom.iso bs=4M
Then, using k3b to burn the resulting ISO, they boot just fine.
