help using mkisofs

i have Need for Speed Underground 2 working in Cedega 4.1.1. To get it to work, i had to edit a config file on the first CD, as per a tutorial posted here in the games section. To do this, i had to copy all of the cd to my hard disk, edit the file, and run the installer from disk. What i'd like to do is simply make a new Cd with the correct file already altered. Can someone help me under stand how to make an iso? I knwo that mkisofs is the command to use, but i don't understand the proper syntax to use.
For example, i have all the files/folders needed to make the iso in one folder, /home/myk/NFSU2/Disk1 What command would i use to group all this and make the iso? I will then use K3B to burn the new disk.

If I remember correctly, it should just be:
mkisofs -o myimage.iso /path/to/game

but you may have to play with some options to get the correct extensions (rock ridge, joliet etc) so that file names are the right length.
Read the man page if the above doesn't work.
