I've had some mostly bad luck in this topic (relative to messing
around with virtual machines), BUT... I did learn that you can do
something like:

xorriso -as mkisofs

Try researching that and see if you can find something that does what
you're trying to do. You might need to drop the hyphen (-) in searches
because that sometimes tells search engines you do NOT want that word
when you DO want it included in this particular search. :)
