Can someone please give me a quick rundown on how to make bootable
CD's for netbsd?

I'm trying to put together a backup script that snapshots the rootfs
and /usr to an ISO9660 CD.  If worse comes to worse I'd like to be
able to boot from this emergency CD and mount the CD as the rootfs.

I notice mkisofs has options to include a boot-image and boot-catalog
on the CD, but there is scant mention of how to construct either.
(The mkisofs src do have a note about making a lilo-based linux boot
