My first answer would be no, but it depends on what you mean exactly. Please clarify exactly what you want to do, because depending on what you mean, the answer could be yes.

Hi Graham,

Well i have downloaded Red Hat Linux 8.0 CD's

One of the ISO is 597MB (packages/apps) and another ISO which is 57MB holds Documentation/installation guide.

So i thought to use up the extra space and not use another CD just to burn 57Megs of documentation.

Thankx

In that case, no - just burn two CDs.

Try this. First load the 57 MB ISO using WinISO (or similiar app) and extract the contents to your hard drive. Then load the 597 MB ISO and add the contents of the 57 MB ISO (the files you extracted to h/d) to the 597 ISO. When done save the ISO (new name of course) and burn the new ISO.

That would work, but it would get very messy for the uninitiated as the first CD will be bootable as itis an install CD for an OS. If you do not create the bootable CD correctly, it won't boot, so no install. Better to just have two CDs IMHO. I know you said to add the contents of the 57MB to the other ISO and haence reserve the boot, it is nopt a newbie operation. Although, there is no harm in trying, and it will be a good experience if you can get it to work.

Hell, I've changed my mind - give it a go.

Well the documentation/installation guide is not needed for the install RH8. But it would help to read them first. Personally I'd throw them on a CD anyway.

I was sure that RH8 was more than 2 CDs anyway.
