    Iso & usb

    Hi Gurus,

    I have a unique issue. Unique in the sense that I have only found the opposite of what I'm after so far. Here goes:

    I have a special bootable "Linux" USB. Tested the USB and it boots up and builds any old PC - with an appropriate BIOS. I would like to convert this USB - better still its contents - to an ISO.

    Reason? VMWare server doesn't support USB bootable BIOS at present. Not sure it ever will.

    Any help much appreciated.

    iso and usb

    I am positive this can be done using the dd command.

    I also know I cannot give you the correct form for the command.

    dd is great, but you cannot make mistakes in code or typing or you lose your data.

    Be patient, I'm sure the GURU's here will pipe in.

    I'm looking for a linux utility that can take an image of my usb stick and I'm hoping that that image would be in an iso format.
