mkisofs is really not hard to do Andrew I can do that, I have requirements
that need to emulate the installer cd. If I just needed to make a custum cd
catalyst is fine or the good old fasion way works too. The point is your
installer cd is useless since it cannot be reproduced this makes it
proprietary, thats not to say it doesnt work as intended.
