I'm trying to backup up the original Solaris 8 bootable install CD which has taken a beating. Before I loose or damage this CD I thought it would be adviseable to make a backup. I used Easy CD Creator on an NT box to duplicate the CD and it produced a CD that looks like the original, has data like the original, but It loads the file from the solaris 8 installation cd COPY THAT I MADE and then it says, "the file loaded does not appear to be executable." Then it restarts the machine the machine normally. Somebody suggested that the SUN Instructions were not followed in duplicating a Jumpstart CD. I just spent the last two days looking through all the SUN docs I have and cannot find any reference or mention.
Any suggestions or instructions on saving my original to a copy would be appreciated. I don't think the original will last much longer.
