First of all, you need to make a filesystem to burn onto the CD. I find it very unlikely that you really want to burn a text file directly. I suggest you start by reading the documentation on the subject: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/creating-cds.html -- Lowell Gilbert, embedded/networking software engineer, Boston area http://be-well.ilk.org/~lowell/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
