Try this....
cd /mnt/win-d/redhat/disk1

then type:
mkisofs r o /mnt/win-c/disk1.iso .

Note: that period ( . ) is important

Re: how to cerate iso image of red hat 9?

I am not entirely sure what you're asking, but if you have the RH9 discs and you want to make ISOs from them, you can use the dd command like this: dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/wherever/RH9Disc1.iso.

Hope this helps.
