I expect there's documentation somewhere, but I don't know exactly

I use something like:
	<have i386.tar as a .tar file of the i386 directory w/
	 INSTALL.*, binary, installation>
	mkdir master
	cd master
	tar xf ../i386.tar
	cd ..
	mkisofs -vRl -b i386/installation/floppy/boot-big.fs -c boot.catalog -o boot.iso master
        cdrecord -v dev=/dev/rcd0d speed=4 blank=fast boot.iso

(I have a CD-RW drive that burns CD-RW at 4X -- if you have a CD-R or
whatever, you can remove the "blank=fast" and modify speed=4 as
