I think you misunderstood here Bill (btw can you trim your replies?).
Adding a few more files in another session and have all files of all
sessions accessible when the disk is mounted requires explicit support
by the filesystem. Ext2, and I suspect any other hard disk fs, can't do
that. You can then only create a completely new disk. For CDs and a
little scripting this beats any linux-packet writing by a long shot and
may match adding another iso9660 session, but not for DVDs even if you
have a very fast computer.
