Really respect your time and effort, good job.

I would definatly like a copy of the book (dont mind paying, i need an uptodate Linux source).

What i would say when posting it here, without line breaks, and all the colours, it makes it a tad difficult to read.

Hello Sir,

This has reference to the web page: "How To Do Eveything With DD -.htm"

> "Make an iso image of a CD"

Done every thing as under,

knoppix@localhost:~$ su
root@localhost:/home/knoppix# dd if=/dev/cdrom of=mycd.iso bs=2048 conv=notrunc
358254+0 records in
358254+0 records out
733704192 bytes transferred in 354.825077 seconds (2067791 bytes/sec)

mycd.iso has permissions-rw-r--r--)to chage the permissions:
root@localhost:/home/knoppix# chmod a+rwx mycd.iso
Now mycd.iso has permissions-rwxrwxrwx)

to mount the image,
root@localhost:/home/knoppix#mkdir /mnt/mycd

root@localhost:/home/knoppix#kedit /etc/fstab
added the line /home/knoppix/mycd.iso /mnt/mycd iso9660 rw, user, noauto 0 0 and saved it.

root@localhost:/home/knoppix# mount -o loop /mnt/mycd

The file system IS available as files & directories.

however sorry to inform you that,

can NOT edit "mycd.iso" as it gets mounted with "-r-xr-xr-x" permissions!

Prof S W Damle
