NAME - Postprocess ISO images for hybrid mode (Perl)



       Starting  in  version  3.72,  ISOLINUX  supports  a "hybrid mode" which can be booted from
       either CD-ROM or from a device which BIOS considers a hard disk or ZIP disk,  e.g.  a  USB
       key or similar.

       To enable this mode, the .iso image needs to be postprecessed with this utility.

       Note:  is a Perl script, a C implementation of the same utility is available
       as isohybrid(1).


       -h  Number of default geometry heads.

       -s  Number of default geometry sectors.

           Specify partition entry number (1-4).

           Specify partition offset (default 0).

           Specify partition type (default 0x17).

       -id Specify MBR ID (default random).

           Always assume we are loaded as disk ID 0.

           Assume disk ID 0 if the Ctrl key is pressed.

           Allow booting from within a partition.
