Ah, I see, first mount the cdrom, then make an iso from its filesystem - then that's OK, but is seems a little of an overkill, as the cdrom already `contains' the iso. If created your way, the image will not be completely identical to the one on the cd (for example, the boot sectors, if any, will be missing). > Maybe I am not really understanding the question... > -- DoubleF A very intelligent turtle Found programming UNIX a hurdle The system, you see, Ran as slow as did he, And that's not saying much for the turtle.
