How do I inject 11+ MB of data into the El Torito section of a Boot CD [or] make the boot section reference the iso9660 section for everything including the command interpritor (I am making the boot disk from hell here) I dont like the fact that everything I try says that I need to fit it on a floppy to do anything and that does not give me the foom I need for NTFS, Networking, SATA, SCSI, USB,etc drivers +utils for DOS.

Any recommendations?

[Edit:] Anyone know where I can find the famed DOS Sata Drivers? [/edit]

I know that this is the third tech prob I have posted recently but those are what are consuming all my time right now.

Well I'm going to assume your making Linux boot disk. If that is the that is the case. I would assume that you might have to put it on DVD, or other media bigger then a 700MBs. It might be to big. You could also take somethings out of the distro.

But I'm not the person to ask. Ask Game Master. He's helped me with my stuff. If you ask me he is the best person I've talked to about Linux.

You can't put 11 MB into El Torito...duh. El Torito uses floppy emulation for the most part - you make a boot floppy image that mounts and reads the contents of the CD-ROM, either using a RAM disk, or by loading the CD-ROM drivers, and mounting the CD-ROM.

We use this at work. I don't know how to set it up, but it boots just about any X86 box.
