Everybody tells me that burning CD's on a Solaris machine is _much_ more
reliable than doing the same thing on NT.
Cdrecord locks into memory and uses the highes real time priority.
You can do anything you like while burning a CD on Solaris.
Quote:>Mkisofs is at-
This is a very old one. Cdrecord contains a mkisofs-1.12b4.
This mkisofs allows you to create ISO-9660 filesystems with Rosk Ridge _and_
Joliet extensions at the same time and supports to create Eltorito Boot.

Rock Ridge _is_ a standard (IEEE-P1282) while Joliet is not a standard.
