Making an Installation Boot.iso CD-ROM from Dump

isolinux (not available for Itanium systems) is used for booting the Red Hat Enterprise Linux installation CD. To create your own CD-ROM to boot the installation program, use the following instructions:

Copy the isolinux/ directory from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux DVD or CD #1 into a temporary directory (referred to here as <path-to-workspace>) using the following command:

cp -r <path-to-cd>/isolinux/<path-to-workspace>

Change directories to the <path-to-workspace> directory you have created:

cd <path-to-workspace>

Make sure the files you have copied have appropriate permissions:

chmod u+w isolinux/*

Finally, issue the following command to create the ISO image file:

 

mkisofs -o file.iso -b isolinux.bin -c boot.cat -no-emul-boot \ 
-boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -R -J -v -T isolinux/
