What command line options should I use (on the fedora machine) to write a BOOTABLE image to the cd so that when the windows box is booted it will see an ISO image and boot

Simple answers like use your favorite software to burn the image are not answers and that's what I find with google

you can use "dd" command to create a bootable image

# dd if=path/of/image.iso of=path/to/device

but be careful with this command you can completely wipe you entire hard disk you you are not careful

double check the path after the "of" part
