HowTo make Installation Boot CD-ROM (RedHat)

isolinux is used for booting the Red Hat. 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

cp -r /isolinux/

Change directories to the directory you have created:

cd

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/

Burn the resulting ISO image (named file.iso and located in) to a CD-ROM as you normally would.
