Data Bootable CD creation

Hi all,

I've been looking around for a easy to read text on how to create a bootable CD of solaris. I'm not the best with a Solaris machine but know enough to keep myself out of trouble most of the time.

So what I want to do is create a bootable CD for Solaris. So in the installation of Solaris it also installs our company software that goes out to people.

Does anyone know where a easy to understand and read document on how to do this can be found?

Thanks a heap in advance if you can help Smilie
