adding drivers in ISO image ..??

is it possible to add a graphics driver (or any other driver) to the iso image of the linux distro.. with help of softwares like mylax creator.. wat i meant was u download the iso image of the linux distro,download the graphics driver and add that to the iso image to create a new iso image .. myslax creator does that ..isnt it.. or am i wrong?
so that it installs the driver automatically ... ..

As a rule of thumb: what is possible in Linux and what not is only limited by your experience.

Sure, you can mount the .iso image as a loop device to some mountpoint, copy the content to a writable directory, make whatever changes you like ("add a graphics driver"...) and rebuild the altered .iso image from that directory using mkisofs.

I hope, you know what you are doing.
I could have been more helpful and precise if you told *exactly* what you intend to do...
*What* graphics driver are you trying to add to *which* Linux distro??

good luck
