[debian-user] Reusing LIVE ISO images of CDs and DVDs
I know there is a documented debian process for editing existing CDs and
DVDs but I don't know the details??? The literature just says to edit
the ISO image placed on the hard drive. I also have some other concerns.
I have a number of live CDs and DVDs. Apparently, one can copy the CD
to hard drive and either execute it there or modify it. This seems to
be a common process. Some of these are not debian based and some are
debian based like Ubuntoo or a release of Sarge. I want to be able to
play around with both the debian and non-debian ones by editing their
contents and/or making the live CDs into live DVDs. Also, the editing
process to make these changes has me confused both from the standpoint
of inserting new content and deleting or changing old content. Once the
editing is done I think I have to remake the ISO image using makeiso
command but the boot and file system will remain intact. The file
system varies on this collection of live CDs and DVDs. I don't know the
internals of makeiso so I wonder if the debian command would work on all
ISO distributions. Actually I would be wanting to put the ISO image onto
new blank CDs or DVDs because there are no R/W CDs or DVDs involved.
Also, I would like to repeat this process over and over as I felt the
need to do so. I would keep the older ones as a reference archive. So
that's the whole issue.
