Is there a way to "burn" a bootable ISO-file to a compact flash memory? Not just extract it, but get all the boot info as you get when burning on a cd?

My idea was, after giving up on nero, alcohol and such program, to get a similar version of "fakecd" which work with xp and simulate the flash as a cd, and then using nero.. but i can´t find any program that can make this cd-simulation.

Greatful for any ideas as to make my compact flash memory card bootable!

Can you instead make the flash drive bootable then copy the files over? If so then I will find that tool. If not I dont know that I can help

The thing is that i have a iso-file of DSL,  a knoppix-version of linux and want to extract  this to the flash from xp. I burned the file on a cd and it worked, now i want to "burn" this ISO file in a similar way to the compact flash so the boot sector is written. This is possible with "true ide mode" on the flash, or so i´ve heard.

The best solution we can offer is for you to use UltraISO to extract the files to the flash card then study up on your Linux commands to setup some type of bootloader like LILO

No, there is not an 'automatic' way to do it at this time.
