First step: burn the official SysRescCd ISO image
In this first step, we will just burn the official 275 MB image onto the DVD disc.
growisofs -Z /dev/hdd=systemrescuecd-x86-x.y.z.iso
Of course, you have to replace “hdd” with the device name of your burner, and update the path to the ISO file.
Second step: add your own files
Now, we will add files to the disc. All the files you want to add have to be stored in the same directory. In this example, we suppose that files are stored in / home / user / mydvd-data-files /:
growisofs -M /dev/hdd -J -R /home/user/mydvd-data-files/
It should be possible to add files several times by running this command several times.
