How to make an image of a bootable dvd

How can you create an image of a dvd that is bootable? And by that I mean create an image which will let you burn a new dvd which is also bootable.

"Daemon Tools and Imgburn have an option to create iso.
Or if you have Nero installed, you can copy the disc to NRG image and then convert it to ISO using the light application Any To Iso. This method is easier if you have Nero installed already.

This explains what makes a CD/DVD bootable"

ImgBurn should do it. I'm not sure what makes a DVD bootable though - presumably some kind of flag? It's something that's part of the data/image, not something physical on the DVD.
