BBIE - Bart's Boot Image Extractor
What is BBIE?
BBIE stands for B
should I call it Bart's Boot Image Explorer? Nea! people would think that
they can browse something.
One more thing, BBIE should be pronounced as "baby".
BBIE will extract all boot images from a bootable CD-Rom or ISO image file. It follows
El Torito Bootable CD-ROM Format Specification v1.0
Getting boot images from a bootable CD-Rom has never been easier.
For example, lets assume your CD-Rom drive is at drive Z:
Just run "bbie z:" to extract all boot image from it.

Extracting from a CD-Rom drive only works on NT platforms (NT4/W2K/XP),
on windows 9x/ME (can still use it to extract from an ISO image).
You don't install it. Just copy the BBIE.EXE file onto your PC and run it.
