Are you sure? I seem to recall having tried it before and not being able
to, I would guess that the file system code wouldn't bother with
implementing write functions given the normal use for that type of
filesystem.... ohhh, I was going to be lazy, but I guess I'll try it...
let's see, find a random small directory
$ mkisofs -J -R --iso-level 3 -o ytnef.iso ytnef/
$ sudo mount -o loop ytnef.iso ytnef
$ cd ytnef
$ sudo touch newfile
touch: cannot touch `newfile': Read-only file system
nope, looks like it's not possible. Wouldn't make sense for makeisofs to
exist if it was.
