Use Adaptec Easy CD Creator to make a bootable CD-ROM. But I think
Easy CD Creator is only for Windows 95/98/NT released. I hope I can help

For a floppy it is done by just copying the kernel image track-by-track, so I
would be curious to know what is the difference for a CD.
(for the practical how-to there will be a HOW-TO I suppose)

1. CD-R devices and creating bootable cds

    I have a Philips CDD 2600 connected to a Solaris 2.5.1 box, and I
    have a need to construct a bootable Unix CD with several partitions
    on it.

    I've created CDs using the free utilities "cdrecord" and "mkisofs"
    before, but I can't seem to be able to figure out how to do what I
    want with these tools in this case.

    So, I guess these are my questions:

        1. Can I make a bootable CD with cdrecord?  Can I make a CD that
           solaris will see as having several partitions with cdrecord?

        2. If not, are there other free utilities out there that will do
           what I want?

        3. If not, is there something commercial that will get the job

    Thanks in advance for any light you guys can shed on this subject.
