right, but i've used mkisofs, and read the manual page on it, but i just can't seem to get the files to correctly become an ISO. When i load the ISO with qemu, it tells me that the ISO is corrupt.
I'm pretty sure that there are a combination of options passed to mkisofs to create the proper ISO for a livecd.
