Posted by webeye on Sep. 15 2008,03:11I did search and the only thing that came up was for usbs and floppy disks. Can it be done where it will work and then I could still have a backup cd in case of messing up remastering my cd.

Copying a cd though is extremely easy, just go to a place with enough space (hd?), then
dd if=/dev/hdX of=cdimage.iso
would copy the cd in drive hdX to an iso image. You can then burn this iso image to another cd.
Edit. I think I get you now. When you create a remaster, it does not overwrite your current CD (unless it's a cdrw and booted toram), so there'd be no need to make a copy.

Thank you, I did not know that.
