For NetBSD/i386, you can do :
% cd /.../nebsd-x-i386
% [mkisofs/mkhybrid] -a -v -r -b installation/floppies/boot.fs . -o /...../cd.iso
installation/floppies/boot.fs is the image of the netbsd
installation floppy disc.
cd.iso is the image of the cdrom you will have to write
(with cdrecord for ex.).
with mkhybrid, you can add '-J' if you want this cd readable by
Don't forget '.' in order to tell mkisofs/mkhybrid that you take
all files and directories from the current path.
