Creates ISO-9660 CD-ROM filesystem images

genisoimage is a pre-mastering program for creating ISO-9660 CD-ROM filesystem images, which can then be written to a CD-ROM (or DVD-ROM) using the wodim program. genisoimage now includes support for making bootable "El Torito" CDROMs, as well as CDROMs with support for many formats, including Rock Ridge, Joliet, and Apple HFS.

The package also includes tools needed to create compressed isofs images (mkzftree from zisofs_tools source).

The options (-RJ) will preserve long filenames, casing and Rock Ridge extensions (long mixed-case filenames and symbolic links for *nix).

Figure out the device to use using wodim -scanbus, available in the wodim package.
