Well, I hacked multicd to create iso9660 ISO images and burn them. It
seems that it currently burns ext2 onto a CD. The author pointed out that
with an ext2 file system he would know how much data would be written,
but with iso9660, he wouldn't. I left some space for overhead and then
I modified it so it would write an ISO9660 image. It's a pretty bad hack
at the moment.
