Re: dd a live image and create a second partition

I don't know how to get the files out of binary.img without first dd'ing to a stick or burning a dvd, and it is just as easy to dd and then repartition. I couldn't get a loopback mount to work since the .img file was not recognized as a valid filesystem. I can easily extract files from the .iso, but then "isolinux" has to be edited to "syslinux" in all the configuration files and directories.
