during the creation of the ISO image. Once you have that, then the
burining process is exactly the same for either "bootable" or
"non-bootable". So.... if you have a "bootable" ISO image already, all

that before I got hit with the clue-bat.
Thanks, Don, Carlos & Alvin.
I stopped trying so hard & it dawned on me the next day. I was almost

pointing to the .iso for the filesystem. Instead I pointed xcdroast at
/cdrom (where the .iso was mounted) & told it to translate the "/cdrom/"
part of the path to "/". I specified the boot.img relative to that
directory ("KNOPPIX/boot.img") & left the default for boot.catalog.. and
After Don's message, I'm not 100% sure I needed to go through the
trouble, but I've already wasted too many CD-Rs to feel like experimenting
