Anyone know how to add SpinRite to UBCD?

When I run SpinRite in Windows, it gives me an option to create an image file that I can burn on CD or put on a floppy.

I created the *.img file and extracted the contents. In the *.img file are these files:

spinrite.exe
config.sys
kernel.sys
srsplash.sys

The spinrite.exe file in the image file is the exact same one I ran in Windows that let me create the image file in the first place.

I opened config.sys w/ notepad and this is what's in it:

DEVICE=SRSPLASH.SYS
SHELL=SPINRITE.EXE

When I opened kernel.sys and srsplash.sys w/ notepad, both had a bunch of unreadable stuff. Also, the official SpinRite website says:

"SpinRite is self-contained, including its own bootable FreeDOS operating system."


Anyone know how to add SpinRite to UBCD and can post a step-by-step on how to do it?

Thanks.

Take the *.img file that you created (suppose you named it spinrate.img)
Place it in /ubcd/custom/.
Edit /ubcd/custom/custom.cfg with Notepad and add:
Code:
LABEL spinrite
MENU LABEL SpinRite
LINUX /boot/syslinux/memdisk
INITRD /ubcd/custom/spinrite.img
APPEND raw

You also can gzip the image with 7-zip (spinrite.img.gz). When you use a gzipped image, it will boot a little faster because less reading operations need to be done. If you use the gzipped image, use:
Code:
LABEL spinrite
MENU LABEL SpinRite
LINUX /boot/syslinux/memdisk
INITRD /ubcd/custom/spinrite.img.gz
APPEND raw

The stuff I have to add to custom.cfg has to be added at the very bottom of the file below all the other text?

TEXT HELP
Your help message goes here.
ENDTEXT
LINUX /boot/syslinux/memdisk
INITRD /ubcd/custom/boot.img
