Re: cd -> iso

And yet another option for those interested in it is using the readcd
program, available in the cdrecord package. The usage is something like
this, under a 2.6 kernel:

readcd dev=/dev/your/cd f=/where/you/want/your/image.iso

This method is better than using plain cp or dd because readcd will try to
do some error correction on the CD/DVD being duplicated.

Hope this helps, Rogério.
