I don't know mkboot. All I know is following: To create a bootable CDROM
you need to specify a bootable floppy image when you run mkisofs.  A
floppy image is a file which holds the whole filesystem of the floppy as
an image. See it as the pendant to an iso image but only 1.44/2.88MB ;-)

So if mkboot creates a bootable floppy you can copy the floppy to
harddisk and use it to create the bootcd.
