Graveman for Gnome (and I assume other burning programs) can write the folder to disk or create an ISO.

Thanks Wayne for the quick reply.
Is there any way to do it without installing any software, i mean by the CLI?

You know i installed graveman and i ve got a nice icon under Applications - Sound & Video - Graveman, but when i lauch it i've got the Graveman window with this "!" in the title and that's it. It seems that it is lookink for something else then nothing happend!!!

Any suggestion, is there any configuration before using it?

Thanks

dd should do the job! Example,==>dd if=/home/lindy/archive of=/home/lindy/archive.iso
More info on dd can be had in both the man page, or info page, or here: http://linux.die.net/man/1/dd

Hy Lindy and thanks for the help.

I followed your syntax and that's what i get:

[root@localhost red]# dd if=/home/red/Desktop/DriverHuaweiModem of=/home/red/Desktop/DriverHuaweiModem.iso
dd: reading `/home/red/Desktop/DriverHuaweiModem': Is a directory
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes (0 B) copied, 0.000453 s, 0.0 kB/s
[root@localhost red]#

It says that it is a directory, well yes i copied a program from a CD to this directory and now i would like to take it as an iso image not as a folder or directory, you see what i mean!!

Thanks for the help

Hy

I got it with the CLI command, great and thanks for all.

I used the command mkisofs and this is the synthax i've used to do it:

mkisofs -V label-name -r directory-name > iso-image.iso

Thanks again
