How can I create a hard disk image that can be booted with isolinux + memdisk? How do I go about, for example, if I want to create a harddisk image of /dev/hda1 which is 4+Mb in size? The docs offered some clues that I need to copy the mbr and the partition table also. I also read from the archives that what I should do to create the image of /dev/hda1 is to use dd if=/dev/hda of=myHDimg.img and this will copy the partition table. If I have several partitions on /dev/hda and not just /dev/hda1 will there be any problem since the partition table copied also described the other partitions?
What I am trying to do is to burn movix and movix2 (http://movix.sourceforge.net) into one cd and multi-boot between the two. Both are available as iso and are about 18-30 Mb in size. Since they are isos i guess more work has to be done to make them multi-boot.
Thank you for the replies.
