The ISO image is created using a McAfee (Network Associates) program
called Clean Boot Manager. While not supported by McAfee, it creates a
very useful bootable virus scanner. The Clean Boot Manager is used to
update the virus definitions and can generate either an ISO image or a
three disk (floppy) set.
The many other things on the CD I am creating all work fine, as they are
created from floppy disk images.
Also, I forgot to include in my last email the mkisofs command I am
using to build my ISO image:
mkisofs -o tech.iso -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat \
-no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -r -J tech
Hope this information helps...
