How to write the bootable CD from Linux

I have a bootable iso image with me, I want to modify some file in the iso image and the write it back to CD as a bootable disk.

What will be the procedure of doing it.

What I can guess
1. Mounting the iso image.
2. Copying the files structure to a directory.
3. Editing the required file in the directory.
4. Making an iso image of the directory.
5 Writing the iso image to new CD.

I got struck in step 4.

Google around found some examples of making bootable disk but where I will the boot.img file?

Can anybody tell me the simplest mkisofs parameters to do so.

The easiest way would be editing(and adding files) to the .iso file. Download this software, after editing save it back and burn to cd
