How To make Your Own Red Hat Installation Bootable DVD

isolinux (not available for Itanium systems) is used for booting the Red Hat Enterprise Linux
installation CD. To create your own CD-ROM to boot the installation program, use the following

Copy the isolinux/ directory from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux DVD or CD #1 into a temporary
directory (referred to here as ) using the following command:

cp -r /isolinux/ 

Change directories to the directory you have created:


Make sure the files you have copied have appropriate permissions:

chmod u+w isolinux/*

Finally, issue the following command to create the ISO image file:

mkisofs -o file.iso -b isolinux.bin -c -no-emul-boot \
-boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -R -J -v -T isolinux/

as you normally would.
