that's exactly what I was looking for. thanks mika.

A new question, I see that you are still maintaining the mkisofs package 
mika. I'm curious why, because in Debian, the genisoimage is recommended/
enforced instead. 

Apart from features available in mkisof (e.g., smkzftree), the 
genisoimage package also includes extra tools useful for working with ISO 

  * dirsplit - easily separate large directory contents into disks of
    predefined size
  * geteltorito - extract an El Torito boot image from a CD image

I'm just curious...
