I appreciate if someone give me further instructions for Windows 7 in order make a successful DVD-ROM ISO from the original zipped DVD Video ISO file supplied here, since my modded PS2 console isn't able to run it yet...
But I had no success on run it. Of course, because I realised later (after reading the whole first post :-}) I am supposed to make some extra steps to make a DVD-ROM ISO file, due to the fact I have a PS2 Slim console with modchip on it (SCPH-90006 HK BIOS v2.30 with Thunder Pro II Gold). So even disabling modchip by software it I could't run PS2 Linux Live DVD properly. I only thing I got was the DVD Video, seeing the warning "This is a Linux Live system for the Sony Playstation 2. You need to start kloader.elf from the DVD to run Linux. If you used kernelloader before, you need to delete the file: mc0:/kloader/config.txt or plug out the memory card." and hearing "Groove Coverage - Million Tears" free music). Detail: I've never used kernelloader before, so I haven't that config file into mc0:/kloader folder.
This well explained, I tried to to my extra job...
I opened the original DVD Video Disc ISO image (ps2linux_live_v2.iso) into Magic ISO 5.4, choosing the option to load it as general CD/DVD image file instead of DVD Video image file. Only acting this way, I was able to delete AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders (the other choice into Magic ISO 5.4 -"load it as DVD Video image file" - don't let me to delete these two folders, since the both ones appears as locked).
Right after that, I clicked on File->Settings to check the ISO file system settings:
- CD File System -> ISO 9660, Rock Ridge and UDF (Universal Disk Format) checked;
- File / Directory names length -> ISO 9660:1992 v2 (Max. of 207)
Then I burned with ImgBurn, but my test on console was unsuccessful too... PS2 Browser sometimes doesn't recognize this disc ("unknown format"), sometimes isn't able to load it ("reading disc..." forever or following by "disc cannot be read"):-(
