Re: Using makefs(8) for bootable cdrom

How would you merge the two images? Just create a single image with two
partitions, but how to write that to a CD?
Could you please provide a step-by-step tutorial for what exactly to do? I
never managed to see the sense of sunlabel, I always thought sun disklabels
were only specific BSD disklabels.
Wouldn't it be better to integrate that either to makefs(8) or installboot(8)?

And what about the other platforms? How are the boot images created for them?
