Shell question and cdburning


hi

I want to take data backup on to a cdrom.My problem is when i want to write
two directories with the same name like

1./var/www
2./home/naren/www

Sice both direcories have the same name(Since making an iso image with the two dirs combined is impossible ,since /home/naren/www automatically overwrites /var/www in an iso) Since mkisofs does not take in to matter the path to which the
files r there but only takes in to accont the last name (i mean only the 'www' part)

So finally i want to write it as

1. var.www
2.home.naren.www

to make an iso image such that when it is burned on a cd gives two dirs var.www
and home.naren.www

I have to make some manipulation when trying to make them(1./var/www,2./home/naren/www) to iso image and then burn it on a cd

How do i do this ???

Any suggestions

Thanks in anticipation

cd burning

what are you using to burn cds?

When I use X CD Roast I have no problems saving data to it with the full path name.
