of the debian woody cds on my hdd, i wud like to burn them onto cds and
tried burning the first of the six using gnome-toaster... but looks like
the cd hasn't been made bootable...
I don't know what gnome-toaster does but the command
# cdrecord file.iso
with proper options writes an image to disk. The image
has to be bootable. mkisofs will say how to make an image
bootable. mkisofs is not needed when the image is available.
i checked out the howtos of cd writing, which doesn't have anything
to say on bootable cds. waiting for replies...
grep the CD-Writing-HOWTO for bootable, El Torito
