The software premasters your
data. During the premastering process, data
can be converted to a form compliant with the
ISO 9660 standard. Premastering your data to
comply with the standard results in a CD-ROM
that can be read on the greatest number of computer
systems. MakeDisc provides transparent recovery
of original UNIX file names, directories, and
symbolic links. The graphical user interface
makes it easy for users to format and test disc
images. MakeDisc runs on 27 UNIX platforms including
Sun, SGI, HP, Digital UNIX, SCO, DG, IBM, and
Unisys, as well as for Windows NTTM.
MakeDisc runs from the command
line or from a Motif Graphical User Interface
(GUI). The GUI is available on selected platforms.
The GUI lets you select premastering options
from a series of three intuitive windows: the
Main window, the Flags (or Options) window,
and the Volume Information window. MakeDisc
provides on-line help for each of these windows.
