Why do you need it?

mkisofs currently only allows to write file with a max. size of 4 GB - 2k.
In about 2 months, there will be a new version that supports files up to 8 TB.
If you use Linux, you then will need to check whether the Linux kernel correctly
supports multi-extent files. I will add the needed multi-extent file support to
OpenSolaris at the same time....

If you have problems with double layer disks, better use the cdrecord that
comes with cdrtools-2.01.01a24. Note that you need to call cdrecord as root
or install it suid root.
