Where to read about that, or did I miss some passages?
Thank you anyway!
I never could make a bootable cd until I got mkcdrec from http://freshmeat.net
It is a bash script, and you can look at it to see how it works.
It lets you choose any kernel to boot with and add any utilities
you want. You can even set the size of the ramdisks, so you
don't even need a harddrive, You can set it up to do ppp.
Try it. It comes with a nice README. It was designed to be
a bootable cd for cd backups, but you can make just the boot cd.
I have mine arranged to put my entire perl library on the cd, so I
can boot any machine and run all my scripts. If you would like to
know how to do that with mkcdrec, let me know, I'll post the method.
