The original specs?

Building a CD image is roughly done as follows on a Linux machine:

 - Create a work directory to hold the CD content.
 - Populate it with the content I want. If I base it on another ISO image
I always copy that image to disk somewhere and mount it through a loopback
device so I can it as a sample.
 - Find the boot floppy image.
 - Create a small shell script to hold the mkisofs command and all
relevant options
