	I normally use only the -r -J options when I'm creating my
	disks and everything works fine. I'm using the mkisofs that
	comes with potato.

	I guess that the problem is the -f option (I just read its
	description now), but I've never used it before so I don't
	know better.

	Also, all my bootable disks work just fine with the -b and -c

	BTW, you didn't mention it in your first e-mail, but you
	actually test the CD using the loopback feature of the kernel,
	right? If not, then it is an excellent money saver.

	Let us know what happens.
