CDIMAGE GUI is just a frontend for the original CDIMAGE commandline tool. The GUI includes it's own CDIMAGE, so you wont need to download it. However if you wish to download just the commandline version, it's listed below.

The CDIMAGE GUI file you'll be downloading is preconfigured with the recommended switches, so all you'll have to change is the directories, volume label, and boot sector path.

Download: CDIMAGE GUI | CDIMAGE.EXE | boot.img

The ISO file created here can be used to burn in any CD burning program you like. Just select the "Burn Image" option or "Burn ISO" option in the software and select this ISO file. You will not have to set any boot parameters as they are already included in this ISO file.
