The files on the tarball burned on the CD can't be copied to and edited
on the OS without mounting the tarball.

Yes, I just need the files after burned on CD preserving original
permissions, symlinkes, etc. So that I can use the CD as a mobile HD
transferring files between PC. After mounting the CD the files can be
read directly on File-Manager, without further work such as
decompressing, and they can be opened/edited and saved onto the PC.
I read "man mkisofs" on RockRidge. I'm not sure whether following
command line can help?
# mkisofs -o cd.iso -r -uid satimis -gid satimis -dir-mode 0664
-file-mode 0664 -new-dir-mode 0664 /path/to/data
I have to go to another PC to check. I'm now working on Knoppix
Live-CD on a PC with a new HD without OS.
I'm not clear of -z option, what does it mean "transparently compressed
file" and "the resulting disks are only transparently readable'?
Can you shed me some light? TIA
