    Need help for packaging iso


    Hi,ppl.
    I would like to know how to make a bootable iso for running in vmware.The iso file that I have made can be used in live usb perfectly,but when it comes to the vmware it shows this:"could not find kernel image vesamenu.c32" in vmware.
    The iso file shows bootable in ultraiso.I tried to clear the boot information by changing the boot information to isolinux.bin,but it did work.So anyone has idea how to fix it?Thank you.

    What version of Linux are you running? Do you have K3b installed on your system (that is my preferred ISO build/burn tool). You say you built an ISO that can be used as a live USB. What are you using to build the USB - Unetbootin or something else? Have you tried it with VirtualBox instead of VMware?

    Each distribution has different techniques to build bootable ISO images that you can burn or use for installation in virtual machines like vmware or virtualbox. You should be able to find an FAQ for your distribution that will tell you how to build your own "distribution". I know that CentOS and Scientific Linux have such.
