I don't have brasero, but in K3b I can add files and burn them in image file. I mean that and be sure to add hidden files. This is only suggestion, it helps when I have similar problem. If you want try it.
--iso-level3 option is a must, otherwise it will cut the names in 8.3 format and probably not work.
PS: Did you check the .tar.bz2 file with md5sum? It appear some error when extract it.
"tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors"
The reason I did not do that is that the instructions explicitly say to burn them it as an image, not a data file.
Also, it IS counterintuitive that it should be done as a data file. That would just but a big bz2 archive on the CD. That doesn't sound like an image to me. Does it sound like one to you?
As for the tar error, that was going to be my next question
But since I have since found that this bz2 file is not going to solve my problem, I will drop this project.
But thanks a lot for your help. You did more than many others would have by downloading and unzipping the file yourself. I really do appreciate that.
