Although its not structured this way, when Puppy remaster application runs, it creates a folder with all the files that will be
  • used to create a CD/DVD
  • used to create an ISO
The folder with files that is used to create either of these is saved on the PC's filesystem.

Questions (this applies to later use of the folder)
  • Is there an app/steps to take the folder and create a CD without having to re-run remaster program from the beginning?
  • Is there an app/steps to take the folder and create a bootable ISO?
Thanks in advance.

Looking at your screenshot,
it appears that the folder created by the remaster script is located at: /mnt/sda1/puppylivecdbuild

So, go to /mnt/sda1
and open a console/terminal (right click in the ROX window, and select: Window > Terminal Here)
then enter the following command:

Quote:
mkisofs -D -R -o whatever.iso -b isolinux.bin -c boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table puppylivecdbuild


Where:
    whatever.iso = <name-of-your-new-iso>
    puppylivecdbuild = <folder created by the remaster script>


That will create a new ISO image,
which you can then burn to CD/DVD using Pburn or whatever.


Hope this helps

You could use ISOMaster from Menu > Multimedia

When opened select File > New

Navigate to the puppylivecdbuild directory and open the contents in the top window.

Left click on each file in turn to highlight it and use the add button to add that file to the lower window.

When all the files are in the lower window select the Isolinux.bin file, click on Tools > Boot Record > Add > Use selected file on image (no emulation)

That last action will make the iso file you create bootable.

Now select File > Save As, give it a suitable name and you have a bootable iso file from your puppylivecdbuild directory.

I notice that in Lucid 5.2.8 if you right-click on the puppylivecdbuild directory the resulting menu includes the option to "Make ISO". The trouble is that the ISO it makes is not bootable. Would it not be better if it were?

Excellent!

All we need now is for all the good ideas that people like you come up with to be included in the official version of Puppy. I am constantly coming across things in the Forum, and thinking "This is so good. Why is it not included by default?"
