mkisofs utility for creating boot dvd

Hi Guys, and points will be provided..

where can I get "mkisofs" Open Source for 11i-PA IUX server to build golden image ?

Also, any suggestions how to build the DVD on a Mac powerbook or Windows ?


NOTE:

$ man instl_combine, says:
Create an ISO9660 format CD/DVD image (that may be greater than 2GB in
size) using the open source mkisofs utility:

example:

mkisofs -U -max-iso9660-filenames \
-D -o /var/tmp/cdfs.iso \
-b ilif -no-emul-boot /var/tmp/cdroot


Thanks for you comments in advance,
Tom

Probably not the answer you want but..

Ignite includes an ISO image creator program already.

Cannot help with the MAC stuff..

Re: mkisofs utility for creating boot dvd

I believe that the "official" mkisofs is
included in the cdrtools package. I usually
get something recent from:

ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/alpha/

Disclaimer: I (modify and) use the stuff more
on VMS than elsewhere, so I can't promise
anything for HP-UX, and the last version I've
tried was 2.01.01a31, which is a few steps
behind the most recent one (2.01.01a35).

I'd tend to use cdrecord to write the thing
on a VMS (or UNIX) system, but any program
anywhere which can write an image file to a
CD or DVD (without fiddling with the data)
should be able to do the job.
