Re: Burning Debian CDs with Windows/NT software



Salam Arifi!

You need an iso9660 aware burning tool on NT.

Don't listen to thoose who say this can't or shouldn't be done...  I
have Debian 2.0 Distribution and Contrib CD's I made on the the NT
machine at work.

You need to download this (free software):
ftp://ftp.cdarchive.com/pub/goldenhawk/download/cdr35c-e.exe

This is a self-extracting executable, with Goldhawk's command-line
based 32 bit cd writer software.  The programme you want here is
FILE2CD.EXE.

Just open a CMD console, and type:

x:\<path>\file2cd 

for a list of options.  It's quite smart, and generally can locate the
burner on your machine, without extended command-line options.

The only one you probably need is the postgap option, for non-joliet,
non-MS compatible CDs.

I succesfully burned several CDs on the first attempt with the command:

c:\utils\file2cd c:\isoimage\binary-i386.iso /POSTGAP

It took about 36 Min. for each burn, at 2x speed.

Good Luck!
