I've got the iso loopback-mounted but it's read-only.

How can I modify an iso image?

Thanks,

You have to rebuild the ISO using mkisofs. AFAIK, you can't edit an
existing ISO.

Steps:
1. Build initial source tree, in this case, using the loopback:

# SRC=/mnt/loop
# DEST=new
(cd \$SRC && tar -cpf - .) | (cd \$DEST && tar -xvf -)

3. Rebuild iso, using mkisofs.
4. Burn iso to cd.
