One thing to watch out for with Joliet extensions is lower case names.
What I mean is that under MSDOS with MSCDEX you might end up with lower
case names in the ISO9660 format, and not be able to access them.
This only happened to me once with mkhybrid and I haven't had a chance
to look into it.  It could easily have been my fault as well. :)

I only point this out because a DOS boot floppy may not work as expected.
(not that anyone would ever use a DOS floppy with his NetBSD CD??)
