I created a CD image with mkisofs last night. It worked great under Linux
when I mounted it as a loop back device so I burn it.
The CD works fine in Linux but under Windows all the file names have been
munged to 8.3. The command that I used was
mkisofs -o image.iso -v -R /directory
Should I use the -l option to allow full 31 character names? The man page
says to use it with caution. Or should I just add -J and make it
Joliet. Can you have both Rockwell and Joliet?
Basically I just want to create a directory tree that reserves the case
the lenght of filename for all OS's. For all the extra bits such as
permission, sym links etc I will go with whatever will work on Linux.
