How to create a mini-boot CD for SLES 10 SP1

If you have an older system that doesn’t have an internal DVD but you do have an external USB DVD, here’s how to build a CD to boot from. This will probably work with any version of SLES 10:

  1. Boot Linux and mount the SLES 10 DVD.

This will leave a “/tmp/mini-boot.iso” that you can burn to a CD using your favorite CD burning software (eg: “k3b -cdimage /tmp/mini-boot.iso”, Nero, or Roxio).

Note that it will initially say it cannot find the media, but when you say “try again”, it will find the DVD.
