Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When I executed the following command, the files & folders from /var/www/html got written on the DVD.
I was expecting the folder "html" to be created on the DVD and then the content to have been copied inside the html folder.
If you're using an IDE drive it may be detected as /dev/hdd, while for SATA drives it will be /dev/sr0.
As for your question, that command will write the directory you point it to to the root of the iso, so if you want to keep the html directory, you have to put it in another directory and point it to that. Whatever directory you point it to will not be created, it will became the root or / of the iso, so make sub-directories.

When I wrote my first DVD, the source was defined as -> /var/www/html
I was expecting "growisofs" to create a folder "html" on my DVD and then copy all files inside that folder.
Instead, "growisofs" copied all files from "/var/www/html" into the base of DVD.
OR in simpler words, how can I "folders" on DVD and contents inside the folder
Rename the directory RR_MOVED to .rr_moved in the Rock Ridge
tree. It seems to be impossible to completely hide the RR_MOVED
directory from the Rock Ridge tree. This option only makes the
visible tree better to understand for people who don't know what
this directory is for. If you need to have no RR_MOVED direc-
tory at all, you should use the -D option. Note that in case
that the -D option has been specified, the resulting filesystem
is not ISO9660 level-1 compliant and will not be readable on MS-
DOS. See also NOTES section for more information on the
-D Do not use deep directory relocation, and instead just pack them
in the way we see them.
If ISO9660:1999 has not been selected, this violates the ISO9660
standard, but it happens to work on many systems. Use with cau-
Your choice as to which option to use.
Specifies the volume ID (volume name or label) to be written
into the master block. There is space on the disc for 32 char-
acters of information. This parameter can also be set in the
file .mkisofsrc with VOLI=id. If specified in both places, the
command line version is used. Note that if you assign a volume
ID, this is the name that will be used as the mount point used
by the Solaris volume management system and the name that is
assigned to the disc on a Microsoft Win32 or Apple Mac platform.
so, add these options after '-iso-level 2'.
