About CD Shell site map

From the Introduction...
CD Shell is a scriptable menu system that provides the ability to create interactive multi-boot optical discs. It will make PC-bootable compact discs or DVD's that can select from several program loaders or kernels located on the disc, or boot from other local disk drives that are attached to the system.

This utility is based heavily on concepts pioneered by Bart Lagerweij in his great program Diskem1x. CD Shell provides similar functionality to Diskem1x along with many new original features, such as an advanced scripting language, graphics, and mouse support. It also has the ability to interface with other great programs such as isolinux/memdisk, Ranish Partition Manager, and Memtest86+.

CD Shell is free for non-commercial use. The program and its source code is distributed under the NASM License. The distribution and use of some optional components is restricted by their respective licenses.

CD Shell 2.1.5 released March 1, 2005
After a long wait, a much needed maintenance release of CD Shell is coming out today. It fixes numerous bugs in the Diskemu module, and lots of other random bugs. You will also find the following new and/or improved features: an updated isolinux module (version 3.07), a new command (return here), the ability to boot Acronis ISO images using Diskemu, support for ISO level 4 (9660:1999) file systems, and finally a cool new script called the Chooser.

On the website, I've recently fixed the link to Reanimatolog's Bootable CD Wizard module (version 2.0a1), and at last the old Boot Scriptor website is now available through the Extra Stuff menu at the top of this page.

Have Fun!
