I use a port called mkisofs. mkisofs -R -l -J -o <filename> . So you would mount the CD and then CD into it. To later burn to another CD I use burncd -f /dev/acd0c -s 10 data $1 fixate Where 10 is the speed of my burner, but you should set it to the max speed of yours.. which if your CD burner is recent is probably faster than 10. :-) Hope that helps. As far as I knowh though this approach will not work to copy a bootable CD. The ISO image will be created and the content will be there, but the new CD will not be bootable. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
