Lightbulb Bootable CDROM issue

Hi all,
I am doing a Linux bootable CDROM. I have done a CDROM with SYSLINUX boot loader and 2.88MB emulation mode.
I have created ramdisk of 16MB by syslinux.cfg. And everything (kernel image and initrd.img [with 16MB filesystem]) fits in 2.88MB loop device.

I have created ISO image with this boot image and other files (real root files).

I boot through this CDROM and i used 'df' command in the prompt and it is showing ramdisk of 16MB correctly. Then i mounted the CDROM and tried to copy the contents of CDROM to the ramdisk. Then it is giving an error as
- attempt to access beyond end of device.
- cp = Read Error : Input / Output error.

So how to copy the contents of CDROM. Whether other boot loaders will help ? Do I need to go for no-emul-boot method ? If yes, how?. I need to copy the big libraries and some of our solutions to the ramdisk.

any help is welcome.

thanks in advance
