     129== Creating a bootable CD/DVD/usb ==
     130
     131During 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.
     132
     133The following commands must be present on your Linux machine before you can use the ```sali_create_bootdisk``` shell script:
     134 - ```genisoimage``` - On most Linux distributions available in the package genisoimage
     135 - ```isohybrid``` - On most Linux distributions available in the syslinux package
     136
     137=== Generate the iso hybrid file ===

     162==== Burning to cd/dvd ====
     163Just use the iso with your favortie burning program
     164
     165==== Copy to an USB drive ====
     166Make sure your USB drive is unmounted, then use the dd command to copy the iso to the USB drive.

     171
     172Assuming your USB disk is device /dev/sdb on your Linux distribution
     173
     174=== Add custom boot entries to the bootable cd/dvd/usb ===
     175Adjust 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'
     176
     177As an example we choose for the image amd64_squeeze_lisa
     178
     179Installation via rsync:
     180{{{
     181label install_lisa_squeeze
     182  menu label Install LISA squeeze via rsync
     183  kernel /kernel/kernel
     184  append /images/initrd.img PROTOCOL=rsync GRUB2=yes SCRIPTNAME=amd64_squeeze_lisa VERBOSE_LEVEL=2 rw
     185}}}
     186
     187Installation via bittorrent
     188{{{
     189label install_lisa_squeeze_torrent
     190  menu label Install LISA squeeze via bittorrent
     191  kernel /kernel/kernel
     192  append /images/initrd.img PROTOCOL=bittorrent GRUB2=yes SCRIPTNAME=amd64_squeeze_lisa VERBOSE_LEVEL=2 rw
     193}}}
     194
     195 NOTE 1::
     196  If you dont have your dhcp configured with sali-imageserver option, you must add IMAGESERVER=<ip of your image server> on the append line.
     197 NOTE 2::
     198  If the name of the image is different from the scriptname add variable IMAGENAME=<name of your image> to the append line
     199
     200Finally run the command sali_create_bootdisk from the bootdisk directory.
