If the installation tree does not contain a .discinfo file, one must be obtained from the top level of a CD. ---------- seems to be describing creating a DVD image from a CD image or a source directory, not how to create a image from a CD or DVD. I'm just talking about the dd if=/dev/cd of=/usr/share/cd.iso command. Useful for creating boot images for virtual machines and cd images for cd/dvd servers. with maybe a suggestion of where to put the image, like /var/lib/xen/images for xen or maybe /usr/share for other uses.
