Any plans (is it even possible?) to add the same
bootability features to mkudffs that are in mkisofs?

Out of curiosity, since I didn't see it mentioned
elsewhere, can someone tell me the maximum size iso9660
filesystem you can create (over 2G? full 4.7G no
problem?). I suppose if I can create a bootable 4.7G
iso9660, then its far less important to me that mkudffs
supports it. I'm assuming that its at least
spec-possible with udf since the claim is that udf is
meant to replace iso9660.

    Making a UDF/ISO-9660 bridge filesystem may help, but
    mkudffs does not support that yet.

    The SuSE Linux DVD has been bootable ever since it first shipped, with
    7.0 (or earlier?). I have no info on how it is made, but it contains an
    iso9660 filesystem (or at least something which is compatible with
    one). isoinfo -d -i /dev/dvd works correctly on the SuSE dvd.
