Creating ISO images in Linux : FEDORA 19

1.  Few useful commands to create ISO images in linux :

First install mkisofs from root by typing :

yum install mkisofs

In most of the recent linux distros...this would invariably be pre-installed...the above command will work for yum installations

If u require to create an iso file from a directory containing other files and sub-directories via the terminal, you can use the following command:

mkisofs -o image.iso -R /path/to/folder/

An example is shown below : here YOURFILE is the name of the ISO image that will be created and then is the route where the data is stored.

mkisofs -o YOURFILE.iso -R /run/media/kurta/CEH\ Tools\ Vol-1/
