"Not that easy". You create a generic CD9660 image with the contents,
then create a ffs image with the boot stuff (including bootloader and
kernel, and probably a config file telling the bootloader to tell the
kernel to use cd0a as root file system), then join both images with the
sunlabel tool (or $TOOLDIR/bin/nbsunlabel).
