Make Bootable CD using K3b


There have been a lot of questions on forums on the internet on how to make a bootable CD using Ubuntu.  I am here to tell you that it can be done using K3b.  Lets get to work.

First thing you will need to do is install K3b if you don't already have it installed.  To install K3b type the following in a terminal:

Gutsy and earlier
sudo apt-get install k3b libk3b2-mp3

Hardy and later
sudo apt-get install k3b libk3b2-extracodecs

This will install K3b and the MP3 plugin.  If you have these installed then skip this step.

This image contains a few goodies like fdisk and format.  You have now created a bootable CD in a completely open source environment.  Proof positive that anything Windows can do Ubuntu can so as well!!!!!

I hope this helps.
