You need a floppy image to create a bootable CD anyway.
When booting from a CD BIOS treats it as floppy.
`man mkisofs` should tell you all about it.
Basically, just create an ISO image as usual with mkisofs, specify where the
floppy image is so it can put it in the right sector on the CD (you'll need
it within first 512 bytes). And don't forget the catalog file.
"mkisofs -R -b floppy.img -c boot.cat -o boot.iso /path/to/iso/files".
That's about it.
What happened to google anyway? Is it down?
