I have created hybrid CD befores using the MAC image program which can
compile a Hybrid CD image..  It's far easier than actually developing the
MAC section on a MAC then pointing your PC CD Rom burning software to that
MAC partition.  Mac image supports autorun and icon on the MAC platform as

Subject: [thelist] surreal mac/pc website cdrom question

Hey all,
I've been commissioned to build a mac/pc cd-rom containing a completely
cross-platform site for offline viewing.

We were planning to aim purely at PC, but unforunately we have to cater
for Macs also -
Given that on the last site we launched - 98% were PC based, 0.9% Linux
based and 1.1% Mac based browsers.

For starters I'm not 100% sure on how to author a disc for both purposes
(I'm sure I can find a solution) but what about the actual support for
flash and video objects?
Googling for a solution comes up with hundreds of answers for PC  - but
zip for mac usage.

Does anyone here have any experience in this, or have any advice on how
to author this to work on both?
The last thing we want to do is alienate any potential users - but at
the same time, unless we're getting 500 mac users of a production run of
5000 discs I don't think it's viable spending most of my development
time purely working of mac support, rather than quality of the overall

Any input gratefully received!
