Modified my kickstart file and want to update it on my install CDs

Hello. I have a set of three Redhat7.3 install CDs. The first CD has a kick start file on it. I copied the file to my hard drive and made a slight change to it. I want to change the install CD now, how do i do that?

Put the kickstart file on the floppy and boot from CD-ROM with
boot: linux ks=floppy dd

to load the kickstart configuration from floppy.

Hello and thank you for the comment! I did put it on a floppy, but now I want to put it on the CD to make things simpler.

OK, put it in any place on CD (you need to burn-one) then
boot: linux ks=cdrom:/<path>

Can I just burn all the files from my existing CD #1 to a directory on the hard drive, replace the existing ks.cfg file with my new one and then burn it back to a new CD?

If it's that easy, can you tell me how to burn it on a Linux box? It's probably simple but I'm new to Linux.

Do you have a CD-burner on your linux box?
Besides, you need to have "mkisofs"
ftp://andante.jic.com/pub/mkisofs/

Then as root:
------------------
# cd <the path your put your files from CD>
# mkisofs -b images/i386/boot.img -c boot.catalog \
        -o /tmp/rh73cd1.iso \                <=== modify the name as your wish
        -J -r -T \
        -p RedHat_Linux \
        -P www.redhat.com \
        -A RedHat_Linux_7.3_KS \     <=== modify as your wish
        -V RH73KS \   <=== modify as your wish
        .
------------------
It well create /tmp/rh73cd1.iso then burn ISO into CD.

Hi,

   The easier is that do it on Windows through Nero or Easy CD creator.
