Ah, I see, first mount the cdrom, then make an iso from its filesystem -
then that's OK, but is seems a little of an overkill, as the cdrom
already `contains' the iso. If created your way, the image will not
be completely identical to the one on the cd (for example, the boot
sectors, if any, will be missing).

A very intelligent turtle
Found programming UNIX a hurdle
        The system, you see,
        Ran as slow as did he,
And that's not saying much for the turtle.
