Non-applicable, applies to documentation.

I'm one of those users that like to build my own iso rather than use the 
pre-built one offered. In doing so, I realized that the "-no-emul-boot" is 
needed to create the bootable image.  Otherwise, the mkisofs will render a: 
"Size of boot image is 7200 sectors --> Error - boot image is not the an 
allowable size" error.

The current documentation at:
does not reflect that requirement, so I thought I'd throw you a "heads-up" to 
let you know.
