in the mkisofs docs, there is a readme on making bootable cds.. The system
is actually quite simple.. u take a bootable 1.44mb floppy, and then make an
image out of it. After that you will hav to tell mkisofs the location of
this file, and the location of the boot catalog (the boot catalog is
automatically created by mkisofs..) What you will now get is a bootable cd.
