I'm actually creating ISO9660 bootable iso images directly using NASM (e.g. "nasm -o cd.iso cdboot.asm"). It works on any OS without any special tools - very handy if you use NASM anyway. I've attached the "cdboot.asm" source code if anyone is interested...


Cheers,

Brendan

Perhaps brendan, you will like to use this ;).

Code:
%define l(x) x
%define s(lab) l(lab)_start
%define e(lab) l(lab)_end
%define PAD align 2048, db 0

%macro START 1
s(%1)
%endmacro

%macro END 1-2
e(%1)
%if %0 = 2
PAD
%endif
%endmacro

for END, if you put any second argument, it will padd. Perhaps help.

Sorry for resurrecting this thread, but we are currently linking to this thread in the OSFAQ, but the file (cdboot.asm) brendan uploaded is gone or at least can't be downloaded from that location...

Bumping this, as the thread is still linked from the Wiki, and the download is still missing...
