In the last 2 fedoras, in opensuse 10.3, and at least Mandriva2008, all have soft linked 'mkisofs' to genisoimage, as if they were the same, or at least performed equally.
>From "info grub" I got this info and used it and would still like to use it, rather than floppys or pendrives.* I keep my windows MBR clean by using 'diskprobe' and 'disksave' after a linux install - reinstalling a clean MBR.
To boot linux I then used 'mkisofs' from the "info grub" to make a bootable grub CD:
<quote>3.4 Making a GRUB bootable CD-ROM
** Here is an example of procedures to make a bootable CD-ROM image.
First, make a top directory for the bootable image, say, `iso':
**** $ mkdir iso
** Make a directory for GRUB:
**** $ mkdir -p iso/boot/grub
** Copy the file `stage2_eltorito':
**** $ cp /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc/stage2_eltorito iso/boot/grub
** If desired, make the config file `menu.lst' under `iso/boot/grub'
, and copy any files and directories for the
disc to the directory `iso/'.
** Finally, make a ISO9660 image file like this:
**** $ mkisofs -R -b boot/grub/stage2_eltorito -no-emul-boot
******** -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -o grub.iso iso
Genisoimage doesn't make a bootable CD, at least not with these parameter - and nothing I've tried so far works.
Can someone can tell me the correct options?* Or even if genisoimage is capable of doing what 'mkisofs' did?
I know I can boot from floppy (but floppys are disappearing), or pendrive (if I wan't a pendrive to shrink to 1.44MB).* I really don't like losing the bootable grub CD option.
Thanks for any clarification.
