How to create a mac-os 7.5.3 installation cd on a Windows / Linux PC ?

Hello !

How to create a mac-os 7.5.3 installation cd on a Windows / Linux PC ?

I got for free from the garbage a

Performa 5200 with keyboard and mouse
PowerPC603,
harddisk Quantum TRB850A,
cd-rom Matshit ACD-ROM CR-800SA ( SCSI id 3 )
40 MB RAM

, with installed System 8.1, fully functional, but no Apple installation 
CD_ROM disk, no Ethernet on the Apple ( no Appletalk on the 
Linux/Windows PC, no modem, no CD recorder. So I can�t use the working 
8.1 system to prepare the CD.

So to build the system from new, I would like to install System 7.5.3 ( 
and upgrade to 7.5.5 later ), downloadable from here:

I would be interested to learn how to create a working bootable  Apple 
7.5.3 CDROM from these downloads, **on a Linux/Windows PC** with CD 
recorder.

Sincerely
Rolf

Addition:

I was told that I need a Mac system running, with the Mac software 
"diskcopy".

With which MAC emulator ( Freeware, useful unlimited Trialware ) might I 
do this ?

Sincerely
Rolf

Hello !

The original instruction is
http://download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/English-North_American/Macintosh/System/Older_System/System_7.5_Version_7.5.3/System_7.5.3_Info.txt
 > Instructions:

So how should I proceed ?
I downloaded the files, I got the archive file of the 7.5 Network Access 
Floppy disk, on the WINDOWS PC !

So must I just find a Mac User which creates this floppy ?
Can I do this with a free Mac emulator or uncrippled Shareware on a 
Windows PC / LInux PC ?

Sincerely
Rolf
