Sorry, Rene! Didn't send it to the group by mistake.

Thanks. I got Ross Smith's version  from the link on

mkisofs seems to work fine but I have not burnt a CD
as yet. On Solaris
I am used to testing the raw image prior to burning
buy using the 'lofiadm'
related commands to associate a device with the raw
image file and then
mounting it. Going through the Cygwin archives I
gather that there are no
loopback facilities within Cygwin, though I picked up
a hint to used something
called 'filedisk'. I have not completed its
installation -- have to backup the
registry first!! -- but, is there any *other* way to
check the integrity of 
the ISO raw image file?
