adding a directory to a CD-image (.iso) - FreeBSD

Hello! I donwloaded an .iso-image (Solaris 10, actually), which is about 2.7Gb. Before burning it to a DVD, I'd like to add a directory to the image. Is there a way to do it with tools available on FreeBSD -- mkisofs, growisofs, etc? I don't want to recreate the main image from scratch, as I'm sure, I'll get the options wrong and it will not boot :-) Can I just add a directory to the existing iso8859 filesystem? Thanks! -mi...

    Default adding a directory to a CD-image (.iso)

    Hello!

    I donwloaded an .iso-image (Solaris 10, actually), which is about 2.7Gb.

    Before burning it to a DVD, I'd like to add a directory to the image. Is there
    a way to do it with tools available on FreeBSD -- mkisofs, growisofs, etc?

    I don't want to recreate the main image from scratch, as I'm sure, I'll get
    the options wrong and it will not boot :-) Can I just add a directory to the
    existing iso8859 filesystem?

    Thanks!

    Well, yes, this is how I get to read the CD-image without burning it first.
    But that is a read-only thing. I need to modify an existing image -- add a
    directory tree to it...

    I have not done this but think you should be looking into making a
    multi-session DVD. This should be easy.

    Method 1 (should be easy and direct):

    Just burn the original DVD image with growisofs in multi-session mode
    (the default):

    growisofs -Z /dev/dvd=image.iso

    You should then be able to directly add your new files with:

    growisofs -M /dev/dvd -R -J /more/files

    Method 2 (probably more appropriate for a CD image):

    Use mkisofs to create a second session .iso file. Something like:

    mkisofs -o second.iso -C <something> -M image.iso -R -J /more/files

    You might need to burn the first session and use burncd/cdrecord or
    something to get the magic numbers for the -C option.
