i want to make a bootable CD.
i want to keep Ghost.exe(norton ghost exe size~700 KB) in it.
As soon as i put the bootable CD and restart my machine , the CD should boot and i should get the DOS.

and then i want to type ..

CD-ROM drive>ghost.exe [enter]

==>this will give me the graphical interface to do the next tasks.

Question :

i am not able to make bootable CD for my above mentioned purpose.

i expect from you , to tell me the complete steps to follow to make a bootable CD for the above purpose.

my Eariler attempts:
1) i am not interested to make bootable floppy, because my Laptop does not have floppy drive.

2) i saw "Ultimate boot CD" website but confused...they are pretty much complicated and they have probabily lots of feature which i am not interested.....i need the simplest thing to do the above task.

3)i tried to download a "CD-ROM bootable ISO image " from the net and burnt via nero burn ISO mode but the CD did not boot!.

4)please note my norton ghost works only on DOS enviornment unlike Norton 9 or 2003 Norton ghost.exe is size 700 KB only...may be the old version...but its fine.

So, question to u guys is to how to make the bootable CD ?

thank you
