To get such content from a DVD, you would just

        % tar xf /dev/dvd

But I think this is only possible with UNIX (BSD, Linux, Solaris).
"Windows" cannot handle this, of course.

you may create small .iso image that consist of some stupid images, readme or autorun configured to format c: ;), then strip first 512 bytes of it with

dd if=winiso.iso bs=512 skip=1 of=tmp;mv tmp winiso.iso


tar Your files as you said, but put winiso.iso first :)

this way - unix user using tar will extract what's needed (just have to delete winiso.iso after), windoze user will see what you wanted in winiso.iso
