Create and manage ISO images
Special tools are required to create and process ISO images. AcetoneISO offers this functionality, even making it possible to handle multimedia files.
ISO images have become part and parcel of the Linux universe, offering the capability of burning a complete distribution onto CDs and DVDs and thus becoming one of the most important means of distribution.
ISOs also form the basis of creating a bootable USB stick and can be used directly inside virtual machines as well. AcetoneISO lets you adapt ISO images to your personal requirements, allowing you to derive a highly individualized operating system from a standard image; however, AcetoneISO can do considerably more.
This small program can be found in the repositories of popular distributions, from which you can easily install it and all dependent packages via your distribution's package manager. If necessary, you will find the source code on SourceForge .
