  After the second attempt and many time outs I managed to get a cd
  image with the proper checksum.
  My questions are about burning the image. I am using SuSE Linux
  6.4 and I normally use cdrecord from the console (Cdrecord
  1.8(i686-pc-linux... ).

  Usually I burn images in the following manner:
  %cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=0,4,0 -data cd-img.iso

  Will this be adequate for e-smith-4.0-cdrom.iso or do I need to
  pass along any other arguements?

  Secondly I would like to include the *.pdf manual and any notes I
  might pick up on the e-smith phorum as additions to the cd. My
  second question is about modifying the image. I have mounted the
  image on /cdrom with:

  %mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 e-smith-4.0-cdrom.iso

  and then copied to a new directory:
  %cp -a /cdrom /opt/src/e-smith-4.0a/

  I will add a directory:
  %mkdir /cdrom /opt/src/e-smith-4.0a/addendum

  and toss my additions in there.

  1. Do I rm all the TRANS.TBL files -I am assuming I need to in any
  directory were the directory structure may have changed- before I
  create my modified image?

  2. Is:
  %mkisofs -r -o e-smith-4.0a-cdrom.iso /opt/src/e-smith-4.0a
  going to properly make the image for me?

Please see my to Adam Ghijben's question about adding SSH to the CDROM image.
