Arjan, I just tried this on a FC1 system and got the following error:

# /sbin/mkbootdisk --iso --device bootCD.iso 2.4.22-1.2188.nptl

Size of boot image is 4 sectors -> No emulation

However, I just checked the mkisofs option layout in the mkbootdisk
script compared to the options a FC ISO uses and they are identical -
esp. the '-boot-load-size' option which is set to 4. Any ideas what's
going on here?
