I *agree* that you can *not* use isoinfo output to copy the *original*
Solaris media as it's delivered from Sun. But I maintain that *if* *I*
*myself* prepare a SPARC bootable image with mkisofs -B on *my* system
and just burn it, then I'll be prefectly able to use isoinfo output to
copy such disk correctly. Can you really refute this statement? Can you
really confirm that after *you* complete all the steps in
README.sparcboot, value returned by isoinfo will differ from actual size
of the image file? A.
