how can i shrink my application cd-rom to make it bootable cd?
You do not need to shrink a cd to make a bootable cd. You just need to make a bootable cd!
- Get a bootable floppy disk ready (www.bootdisk.com for lots of them) in your floppy drive
- Fire up Nero and select to write a bootable cdrom
- Drag all files and stuff towards the left screen
- Select the floppy disk drive letter (A:) as the source of your bootable image/files
