I thought DVD-ROM disks had more capacity than CDRs and CD-RWs. If so
wouldn't this be a probem? As far as I know there are no switches in
either mkisofs or mkhybrid to specify the size of the target volume, and
I know from personal experience both programs will complain if the output
is larger than about 650Meg.
