Unhappy mkisofs and Joliet

I have a cdr that was burned on a WinDOS machine and uses Joliet. When I run mkisofs -M 0,0,0 -C `cdrecord dev=0,0,0 -msinfo` it looks for Rock Ridge, can't find it, and falls back on the ISO 8.3 format. Is there an option to tell it to read Joliet filenames? Or (I seriously doubt this) an option in Nero or Easy CD Creator to write Rock Ridge?

You might have to re-compile your kernel to provide support for Joilet support.

If you use make menuconfig its in the Filesystem section (CONFIG_JOLIET).

No, that's not my problem at all! My kernel supports Joliet. My problem is: mkisofs will not read joliet signatures from a disk when writing multisession. I need to write more stuff to the disk, and I don't want it mangling the names that are already there.
