Hi Joe,

Tks for your advice.

- snip-
> mkisofs -o cd_image.iso <flags from mkisofs man
> page> dir/ ?

Applying following command lines
# mkisofs -o cdimage.raw -R

# mkisofs -R -o cdimage.raw

# mkisofs -o cdimage.raw -R -pathspec

all having same result. The path has not been copied
to the cdimage, only the subdirectories under
'document-AAA' copied.

If adding -J to the command line, cdimage can't be
created with warning 'mkisofs: Joliet tree sort
