making custom bootable CD out of ISO?


ok,

i'm still trying to figure out how to get slack 9.1 working on raid0 array which is using onboard SiL3112 SATA. someone posted on the net that they used ataraid.i from the /slacware-current directory. i already have burned slackware ISO's. I don't have working floppy so i can't make bootable floppy with that image. what im trying to do is to extract all the files from the slack 1 cd, change the new ataraid.i with the old one, and use some burning program to make bootable cd image again. can someone help me with that?

i know there's some mskinfo program or something like that even for windows, but i'd like to know if there's any way to make bootable ISO the way I want. any help is appreciated. thanks

Hi there

I know that there is a live distribution of slackware. Check it out at http://www.slackware-live.org
The guy who made the distro also explains how to change the content of his live-cd to make one that suits your needs.

Hope you find your answer there

Ontop of the very helpful posts above, and the people who previously helped you with this question in other, similar threads, mabey having a look at "el torito" will be what you want.

'man mkisofs'
