The debian distribution has a bootable cd which you can use as a
rescue disk. If you want to create your own, then have a look at the
debian-cd_0.1.4.deb package (or newer if available). It contains a set
of scripts that is used to create the debian cd set.



1. Creating bootable linux cd from install tree

I am trying to create a bootabe linux 7.2 cd from the install tree I
downloaded from a redhat mirror. I have succesfully created an iso
image using mkisofs but it is way too big to burn onto one cd. Can
anyone tell me how to split the install tree into 2 or more images
that I can burn onto seperate cd's and still keep them bootable?

I know it would be easier to just download the iso images for disk1
and 2 from redhat but I want to be able make the iso images myself so
that I can customize it.
