when you are at it perhaps you can find out how to read multivolume cds too.
Dont ask me what it is but our software (gear) allows to make cds in
this format. With it it seems you can burn several cds in one without
reading the filetree and produce a new filetree image.
I made such a CD once but was not able to read it with any OS yet.

PS: Are there known bugs in the iso 9660 filesystem? I often had messages
concerning non existant files on my Fred Fish CDs when at night the
crond starts the examine jobs and i had such a CD forgotten to remove in
my CD300 (NetBSD-Amiga). The filenames looked very strange then, i did
not dig any further anyway..
