Is it possible to add a extension and a directory with winiso? I've tried burning a few, but whenever I try to boot from them it says I've got a bad checksum.

If you have Linux installed on a system, I believe you can alter the iso file itself by mounting it on the filesystem.  I wouldn't try editing iso files on one operating system for another OS. You can mount the filesystem by using
Code Sample
mount -o loop xxxx.iso /mnt/(empty folder)
. Then you can traverse the filesystem like a big folder on the main filesystem.  Just make sure to use the umount command to avoid corrupting your iso:
Code Sample
umount /mnt/(empty folder)



If you can, you can test the iso file by using qemu from the dsl embedded zip file.  When it is downloaded, extract the files and edit one of the lines in the batch file.  It might look something like this
Code Sample
START qemu/qemu.exe -L . -m 128 -hda knoppix/knoppix -hdb qemu/harddisk -soundhw sb16 -localtime

Add the iso file as a cdrom and boot from it:
Code Sample
START /qemu/qemu.exe -L qemu/ -m 128 -boot d -hda knoppix/knoppix -hdb /qemu/harddisk -cdrom (path to iso file)/xxxx.iso -soundhw sb16 -localtime

This should keep you from the time-consuming task of burning isos that might not work.  I should warn you that this is recommended for computers above 1Ghz, but it keeps from wasting cds.

iso files mount read-only.  Attempting to edit a mounted ISO is the equivalent of attempting to edit a cdrom.

u can use make mydsl cd remaster that's under menu apps - tools
or try ultraiso, be careful of the optional directory permission.

Try to use magiciso to make iso image. It works better than winiso.
