Attempting to create a bootable CD following exactly the instructions on the web page.
When I run the command "bcd cdromsi" from a command prompt within Windows XP Pro it proceeds through a number of steps and then produces the following message:
I am attempting to incorporate the files for the DOS version of F-Prot antivirus into the bootable CD
Is there something that I have missed in the instructions or is this procedure not compatible with Windows XP?

I got this error extensively when I first began creating the CDs. I somehow deduced it had something to do with the location of my temp directory. For example, yours appears to be C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\Ron\LOCAL SETTINGS\Temp. My thinking was that BCD utility (perhaps the BFD utility as well) could not interpret the spaces in the path names (Documents and Settings, Local Settings) and would error out because it did not know where to write the BCD.ISO file. I created a C:\Temp on my hard drive and modified the Enviornment Variable settings from %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp to a static C:\Temp. This immediately corrected the problem I was having.
