I've read stuff that seems to indicate that it is possible to make
an isofs with a boot parts of a hard drive, but the details were
for a M$ product, and not for mkisofs.  And since mkisofs says
1.44 or 2.88 is what I need, I bookmarked the page, and went on
with life.

As far as using 2.88, I don't have a 2.88 drive, but I figure there
ought to be a way to do it.  As far as that goes, I've never even
heard of anyone that owns 2.88 M drive.
