Creates an image of an ISO9660 filesystem.
The mkisofs program is used as a pre-mastering program; i.e., it

a given directory tree and generates a binary image of the tree
which will correspond to an ISO9660 filesystem when written to
a block device. Mkisofs is used for writing CD-ROMs, and includes
support for creating bootable El Torito CD-ROMs.
Install the mkisofs package if you need a program for writing

systems which do not suppo

What is El Torito?
Simply put, El Torito is a specification that says how a cdrom should
be formatted such that you can directly boot from it.
The "El Torito" spec says that ANY cdrom drive should work (scsi/eide)
as long as the BIOS supports El Torito. So far this has only been
tested with EIDE drives because none of the scsi contro
