Check http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/CD-Writing-HOWTO.html and

Using mkisofs with the apporpriate arguments to make it bootable, an ISO
image file of the CD is created containing the boot image (i.e.
resc2880.bin) and whatever else is desired (i.e. base2_2.tgz).  Then a
CD is "burned" with the custom image.  It's pretty simple really.  

Bootable CD's conform to the "El Torito" specification.
