I'm trying to create a bootable CD for Windows. I know I need to create an
image of a bootable floppy for this. No problem. I did a dd if=/dev/fd0
of=boot.img. That created the image of a bootable floppy.

Now I try to get it burned onto a CD. I've tried both Xcdroast and mkisofs
from the command line. No luck. Most of the time it tells me that it can't
find the boot.img file. But it is there, and it is the right size. I'm
missing something quite simple but can't figure it out. The man page is of
little or no help other than giving the -b eltorito_img_file command. no
examples to be found on the page at all.

Does anyone know how to do this?
