Hi, Can I write files to mounted iso images?

Even I tried mount the iso image in rw mode, when I try to modify the contents, it will always say it's a read-only file system. Can I modify the content of an iso image or how can I do it?

You could create a new iso filesystem use 'mkisofs' and passing it the current files and file you want to add. There may be more usefull stuff on 'man mkisofs'

Thank u very much, but then the question is the original iso image is bootable, how can make the isofs bootable too?? O.K. I will take a look at "man mkisofs" first.
