I use a port called mkisofs.
mkisofs -R -l -J -o <filename> .
So you would mount the CD and then CD into it.
To later burn to another CD I use
burncd -f /dev/acd0c -s 10 data $1 fixate
Where 10 is the speed of my burner, but you should set it to the max speed
of yours.. which if your CD burner is recent is probably faster than 10.
Hope that helps.
As far as I knowh though this approach will not work to copy a bootable
CD. The ISO image will be created and the content will be there, but the
new CD will not be bootable.
