I'm used to run on my T43 work Laptop, a LiveCD aptosid with nice results.
Once up and running, I add wi-fi and other firmware by deb files stored on an usb pen.
Now, seeing last ISO image of 2010.03 so "small" (<600MB), I'm thinking if I can insert directly on iso image a directory "/firmware" where to store all these additional files.
That using, i.e., "iso master" software.
Does it sound possible or, unfortunately, it is more complicated than an easy cd-iso image managing ...
Thanks,
Barlafuss

using fromiso with persist one can install firmware easily

please pay attention to this bug on 2010-03 and use ext2/3 as filesystem for the device

@x-un-i
yes, that's fine. But I "cannot" use usbpen(laptop has only one usb, the second one is not more working) or touch HDisk.
So, my idea was/is try to modify the iso-cdrom image to fit better my custom needs.

Ciao,
Barlafuss

Aptosid does not support iso-pollution as we try to build them as clean as possible to keep it near to a clean debian system.
So you are on your own and must look for possible help in the web out there

It's right what x-un-i said, but the command you are searching for is genisoimage.
I have always used
      Code:
 genisoimage -l -J - R -joliet-long -b (Boot image) -c (boot.cat) --no-emul-boot -iso-level --boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -o (output file) (Folder where to make the iso from)
or something like this. But for more Information you can visit the Site of the Linux Command Directory of O'Reilly Media; you can find it under mkisofs.

EDIT: Optimized the command
