You can use Alcohol 120% or PowerSO.
But not too sure whether it runs on Linux.

RAR is similar to ZIP, it's a compression format. Why would you want to convert to ISO?

Hi mickliq,

unrar can decompress *.rar. I just wonder whether there is a package running on Linux to convert/burn it on the fly. I don't think I can create an .iso image direct on those decompressed files with mkisofs/genisoimage

Just burn the RAR file to a disc, I don't get why you would want to burn it as an ISO? That's not what ISO is generally used for.

You can't convert it to an ISO as such. I suspect that if you un-rar it then you'll find it is an ISO image already.

I think one uses mkisofs to create a cd image. You may have to do other stuff to make it bootable.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Hi folks,

I got your advice. Just burn the decompressed files on the CD. Then I can install the software.

Thanks
