i'm new to everything such memdisk,grub4dos,isolinux,etc so i cant figure what to do now..

i have some windows xp recovery iso for my multiboot cd, in case my pc goes wrong i can fix it.
since the automatic settings for xp iso already filled, i need to add another xp recovery console iso in the extra folder (but not the same as the first one).
the question is, what do i need to add in the extra.cfg?

I had the same problem.
I have it working now.
Here is my *.CFG file info for my XP Recovery console.

label  XP Recovery Console

menu label XP Recovery Console


This is the standard Windows XP Recovery console that is included

in the Windows XP Professional SP2 Installation Disc.


	  COM32 /isolinux/chain.c32

APPEND boot ntldr=/I386/RCXP.BIN

1. unarchive your rc.iso (assuming you are using the xp recovery console download via sardu)
2. move the "I386" directory to the root of your iso
3. move the WIN51 and WIN51IC file to the root of your iso
4. rename SETUPLDR.BIN to RXCP.BIN (or whatever you'd like)

if i remember correctly, this is how i got my recovery xp iso to work in my multiboot isolinux iso.

Let me know how it works!
