As far as CD-RW and DVD read capability goes: I have no idea if it
does.  Not something I can test easily.

Yep, it did! ;-)

On a related note: I actually had to hack mkisofs to make it possible to
install an El-Torito image bigger than 2.88MB.  I'm sure I didn't do it
entirely correctly, so this is something that should be looked into.

Also, if you use a recent mkisofs, no hacking will be necessary.
Instead, there is now an option that let's you write "harddisk"-typed
boot images (sorry, I forgot the option name, but you'll find it by
searching for El Torito in the cdrecord man page).  This will take
some fiddling and experimenting to get right, I assume.
