I would like to send a Free BSD CD to a friend with a copy of system.twmrc (basically a text file) added. I can burn a copy of a BSD CD ROM OK but that won't allow system.twmrc to be added. When I take the contents and burn them the CD is not bootable. When I try to create a bootable CD in Nero it asks for a boot floppy, but I am unclear which files need to come off the CD onto the boot floppy. 
 
Is there an easy way to burn  a bootable disk add system.twmrc in during the process
 
Regards
 
Ed

Yes. The Lowlander. And it's a good pub too.

Yes it is as far as I can see. The BIOS doesn't say much but I installed linux and the hard disk shows up as hda and the cdrom is hdc.
