i have looked at the script and am not too sure how it all works:
i have modified it to be correct for the version but my questions are;
1. what extension do i save this script as? and where?
help pages said the script should be in /x86_64/misc/

file directories are as follows:
1. Directory Organization

   This directory is organized as follows:

   |--> media/           
   |   |--> main/        main binary packages
   |   |--> contrib/     contrib binary packages
   |   `--> media_info/  packages meta data
   |--> install/         
   |   |--> extra/       installation advertising images
   |   |--> images/      boot images
   |   `--> stage2/      ramdisk images of the installation
   |       `--> live/    installation program files
   |--> isolinux/        isolinux boot images
   |--> doc/             installation help files in various languages
   |--> dosutils/        installation utilities for DOS
   |--> misc/            source files, install trees
   |--> VERSION          current version number
   |--> COPYING          copyright information
   |--> INSTALL.txt      installation instructions
   `--> README.txt       this file in text mode


2. there are destination folders that dont exist that are in the script
for example:
rpmlist -b pieces/10.1/extra/RPMS -s pieces/10.1/extra/SRPMS
rpmlist -b pieces/10.1/x86_64/media/main -s pieces/10.1/SRPMS/main

the only folder in /10.1/ is /x86_64/
will this be alright and it will use that folder and create its own or should i modify the script here?

the script in question:

list 1 -k pieces/10.1/x86_64/media/media_info/pubkey_main
mkcd/10.1/tools mkcd/10.1/main
rpmlist -b pieces/10.1/extra/RPMS -s pieces/10.1/extra/SRPMS
rpmlist -b pieces/10.1/x86_64/media/main -s pieces/10.1/SRPMS/main

list 2 -k pieces/10.1/x86_64/media/media_info/pubkey_contrib mkcd/10.1/contrib
rpmlist -b pieces/10.1/x86_64/media/contrib -s pieces/10.1/SRPMS/contrib

dir rpms media/main2

dir rpms media/main3
generic --synthesis rpms 1

3.do you think this will work and create the three or more disks?
4.what commands do i need to give at the #
this is what is given:
./misc/MakeCD -i /path/for/ISOs -a /path/to/cooker/
5.is there a easier way than all this?
6.has anyone got a better script or reference page?

just learning and having fun as well
i want to run a server with it

thanks
david
