Can you tell me more about isohybrid, or link to a project page? Google
wasn't exactly helpful.

It's a new feature of syslinux which modifies a mkisofs-generated
bootable ISO (which uses isolinux), such that it also adds a syslinux
boot record. The resulting .iso file can be burned to a CD and booted,
or written straight to a USB key (dd if=...) and booted.

The trick is that it uses some of the same metadata space that we use for our CD checksums. Hence, need to spend a little bit of time to see if either a) we can get both to work or b) figure out a different way to handle the checksums
