I've been Nero free for quite some time now, but there's one nagging thing that I haven't been able to figure out how to do in InfraRecorder: Create a bootable CD. This is coming up again of course due to the release of Windows XP SP3, until SP3 VL media is available on MSDN I'll be using a slipstreamed copy.
I refuse to install Nero just to do this, so what the heck am I missing? I'm following one of the multitude of guides out there that have always worked in the past for me using Nero. The SP integration worked fine, and I've extracted the boot image from the MSDN ISO, but I can't get it all to burn correctly.
