Did that, which produces: 

[su]: file /usr/src/BUILD_OBJ/BIGBOX/releasedir/iso/i386cd.iso 
/usr/src/BUILD_OBJ/BIGBOX/releasedir/iso/i386cd.iso: ISO 9660 CD-ROM

I changed -R to -r, it seemed reasonable. 

[sh}: mkisofs -o /tmp/cd1a -b i386cd.iso -l -J -r -allow-leading-dots \ 
Warning: creating filesystem that does not conform to ISO-9660. 
Size of boot image is 340056 sectors -> mkisofs: Error - boot image

Perhaps, should I be using some other files? 

[su]: file 
/usr/src/BUILD_OBJ/BIGBOX/releasedir/i386/installation/floppy/boot-big.fs: x86 
boot sector 

[su]: file /usr/src/BUILD_OBJ/BIGBOX/releasedir/iso/* 
/usr/src/BUILD_OBJ/BIGBOX/releasedir/iso/i386cd.iso: ISO 9660

I seem to be having a senior week. Where am I going wrong with this?
