    46 == Creating a bootable CD/DVD/usb ==
    47 
    48 During these steps we assume you have unpacked the sali-x86_64-1.5.7.tar.gz in /tmp. So we have all SALI files under /tmp/sali-1.5.7.
    49 
    50 The following commands must be present on your Linux machine before you can use the ```sali_create_bootdisk``` shell script:
    51  - ```genisoimage``` - On most Linux distributions available in the package genisoimage
    52  - ```isohybrid``` - On most Linux distributions available in the syslinux package
    53 
    54 === Generate the iso hybrid file ===
    55 {{{
    56 cd /tmp/sali-1.5.7
    57 ./bootdisk/sali_create_bootdisk

    61 Using ISOLI000.SVN;1 for  /tmp/sali-1.5.7/bootdisk/isolinux/.svn/text-base/isolinux.cfg.svn-base (isolinux.bin.svn-base)
    62 Size of boot image is 4 sectors -> No emulation

    78 
    79 ==== Burning to cd/dvd ====
    80 Just use the iso with your favortie burning program
    81 
    82 ==== Copy to an USB drive ====
    83 Make sure your USB drive is unmounted, then use the dd command to copy the iso to the USB drive.

    85 {{{
    86 dd if=/tmp/sali-1.5.7/sali-x86_64--hybrid.iso of=/tmp/sdb bs=8192k
    87 }}}
    88 
    89 Assuming your USB disk is device /dev/sdb on your Linux distribution
    90 
    91 === Add custom boot entries to the bootable cd/dvd/usb ===
    92 Adjust the file isolinux/isolinux.cfg to your needs to start installation via rsync or bittorrent. Some examples herebelow to generate a custom bootable SALI cd/dvd/usb. If you open the isolinux/isolinux.cfg you can add your custom entries between the comment lines 'BEGIN HERE' and 'END HERE'
    93 
    94 As an example we choose for the image amd64_squeeze_lisa
    95 
    96 Installation via rsync:
    97 {{{
    98 label install_lisa_squeeze
    99   menu label Install LISA squeeze via rsync
    100   kernel /kernel/kernel
    101   append /images/initrd.img PROTOCOL=rsync GRUB2=yes SCRIPTNAME=amd64_squeeze_lisa VERBOSE_LEVEL=2 rw
    102 }}}
    103 
    104 Installation via bittorrent
    105 {{{
    106 label install_lisa_squeeze_torrent
    107   menu label Install LISA squeeze via bittorrent
    108   kernel /kernel/kernel
    109   append /images/initrd.img PROTOCOL=bittorrent GRUB2=yes SCRIPTNAME=amd64_squeeze_lisa VERBOSE_LEVEL=2 rw
    110 }}}
    111 
    112  NOTE 1::
    113   If you dont have your dhcp configured with sali-imageserver option, you must add IMAGESERVER=<ip of your image server> on the append line.
    114  NOTE 2::
    115   If the name of the image is different from the scriptname add variable IMAGENAME=<name of your image> to the append line
    116 
    117 Finally run the command sali_create_bootdisk from the bootdisk directory.
