    DAEMON Tools doesn't do that.

    You could try Astroburn and then you also need a boot file.

    M$ use for Win 9x/NT/XP/2000 the same Bootfile. afaik Vista too.

    as Blazkowicz say you need astroburn or nero.

    i can only say how nero can do this.

    open nero > new comp (CD-ROM Boot) >
    start opt.:

    2nd option > image file > search > all files > boot.img

    expert settings

    emulation > no emulation

    sectors hex > 07C0

    load secotrs > 4


    now you can insert a *sif file in the 386 folder (when you'll make auto install disc), and when you like it you can fill the disc with some prgramms you need (f.e Daemon Tools )

    now burn this

    @Blazkowicz can i post the boot file here or is this illegal?

    @mailvijayk why is your XP not bootable!?!?!?

    test it with a CDRW before you finally burn! i some cases won't boot the disc.

    install on a virtual machine.
