No, absolutely not.

However, you need to give it the contents of the ISO image, rather than
the image itself. If you have written it to a DVD file, the easiest way
to accomplish this is to point jigdo to your DVD drive's letter (under
Windows) or mountpoint (under Debian).

If you haven't written it to a file yet, you need to 'loop-mount' your
DVD image. That is being done as root, using the following command line:

mount -o loop /path/to/sarge-i386-1.iso /media

and then point jigdo to /media. After you did this, it should work. I'm
not sure if, or how, this is possible under Windows.
