Do you mean data DVD?

What is a "self-Run iso date"?

The two main programs that would help are...

mkisofs - for creating the filsystem layout

cdrecord - for writing to a disk

"Date DVD" mean is there are some date in DVD disk.
"self-run iso date" mean is after u burn the iso date in a DVD disk, this DVD can self run when u insert to DVD-Rom

i have some puzzle about the burn used the command:
1. do i need erase the old date on the DVD-R/W disk first?
2. do i need format the DVD-disk again?
3. I am very sad beacuse i can not find the "mkisofs" and "cdrecord" command in my system, anywhere can download these 2 package?

What do you mean "self run", do you mean bootable?

Freeware for Solaris and look for "cdrtools" and "mkisofs".

Normally you use pkg_add on Solaris to install a set of files from sunfreeware.

You want to make a bootable CD/DVD? Do you know about Jumpstart?
