[QUOTE=mciahel;2619244]A bootable CD (or CD image) based on DOS stuff is rather easy. You need to provide either a complete DOS boot floppy or an image of such (Rawrite is your friend) for the boot information, the rest is standard functionality in most CD writing software. Here, I might point you to the documentation of your CD writing software.
Also, since Floppies are phased out, most DOS based software is now provided as CD image or USB Stick generator. USB is even the best: Put DOS on it and make it bootable. Then you can throw any DOS software on that stick without thinking about image building and stuff.
Booting from usb though is not an option on older systems. That’s its only drawback. Mainly i want to be able to use such programs on an old Pentium 4 PC i have from almost 13 years, and of course it doesn’t support that. But other than that it should be the best option i Agree.
Technically how do you put DOS on a USB and make it bootable? Also cant you boot into DOS and just load the program from a USB? Even if older computers dont allow booting from USB, i think they can use USB devices if you manage to go into DOS in some other way.
Also how do you mean “USB Stick Generator”?
