Well, having commented that out, to see what else breaks, it seems that
isomarkboot has suffered bitrot since I last used it.

Check this out:

# mount -o loop,ro /unmirrored/test-area/alpha/woody-alpha-1.raw /cdrom
# find /cdrom/ -name bootlx
# find /cdrom/ -name root.bin
# umount /cdrom 
# isomarkboot /unmirrored/test-area/alpha/woody-alpha-1.raw \
    dists/woody/main/disks-alpha/3.0.22-2002-04-09/bootlx   \
iso: Max size:281520   Log zone size:2048
iso: First datazone:48   Root inode number 98304
dists/woody/main/disks-alpha/3.0.22-2002-04-09/bootlx: file not found

I was under the inpression that you just had to avoid symlinks, and
isomarkboot would take the paths given and look them up in the iso

I seem to have had isomarkboot sitting in /usr/local/bin since Aug 2000,
and I'm afraid I've forgotten where I got it from, so perhaps I need a
later version?

Cheers, Phil.
