How would I got about doing that and then making it bootable if I already have a file structure?

Say I have modified a file in the .iso, can I in turn make that bootable using SYSLINUX (Red Hat 9)?

It seems that the CD-HOWTO says that SCSI CD-ROMs do not work with El Torito:

"The "El Torito" spec says that any cdrom drive should work (SCSI or EIDE) as long as the BIOS supports El Torito. So far this has only been tested with EIDE drives because none of the SCSI controllers that has been tested so far appears to support El Torito."

Any luck with SCSI CD-ROMs?

adding files to ISO image...

The only way I know to do this is in Windoze using WinImage. Don't know of a Linux app which would do this for you, unless FileRoller will do it.

Another Win app is WinISO -- the free download version can work with ISO images up to 100MB.. anything beyond that requires a purchase. I haven't tried working with ISO's much in Linux yet.. other than mounting them in a directory and creating a plain(non-bootable) iso from a directory structure.
