Thanks for the enlightenment.

Thank you once again for offering your tag files for the third time . But when I created this thread I unintentionally created the tagfiles in their proper folders just like your link shows. The only difference is the .org file which I don't have. Can you explain me why is that .org file necessary/compulsory? Can I do without them?

It's not necessary/compulsory Yes you can do without them
It is the original tagfile (the unmodified one from the installation cd).
It is there only if you overwrite the original one on the cd (like you intended to do with ISO Master) and messed up. This way you would always have the original one in case of such an emergency
Think of it as "tagfile.original".

When I first did my tagfiles, I used AlienBOB's tagfile generator script and it created the tagfile.org file automatically.
