Partimage bootable cd creation

Hi people,
I've done a little expansion and extension to the official text on how to create eltorito bootable cds with Partimage on them to enable you to backup your entire hard disk including the root partition.
The official document has typos in it for the mkisofs command which makes the command un runnable (I have emailed the site but no reply as yet).
What I've done works and also makes life a bit easier with a small shell script as well.
Anyway if you want try it out check here
