Getting Images from CDs

It is easy to get an image from a CD with the dd command. Just type this:

bash# dd if=/dev/cdrom of=image.iso
1313572+0 records in
1313572+0 records out

This will create a file called image.iso that is ready to be burned onto another blank CD. It is probably a good to know if it is legal to copy a CD before you copy it.
