you'd need to install /isolinux also to make it bootable

i'm not sure if debootstrap is the same as isolinux for making CDs

the hard way, but more fun ... and more customized ..
	mkdir /opt/Top-of-CD
	cp -dpar /isolinux /opt/Top-of-CD
	cp -dpar /your-debian-box /opt/Top-of-CD  <<-- the trick
	mkisofs ... Top-of-CD.iso
