Okay, I think I rtfm wrong.
I tried using dd, but go a input/output error. The disc seems to work
though, as I am doing and install right now with it.
Reading and testing mkisofs further I made the mistake the the boot image
and catalog are relative to the source location, not specific too.
That is, my source is /mnt/cdrom where the mandrake cd is mounted. My
syntax originally was:
mkisofs -r -b /mnt/cdrom/Boot/cdrom.img -c /mnt/cdrom/Boot/boot.cat -o
I guess it should have been:
mkisofs -r -b Boot/cdrom.img -c Boot/boot.cat -o
since I have not received any complates yet. The iso is just about done
and I will burn this to see how it goes.
Apparently that was the ticket. I'm doing an install now with the disc.
