Icky. I have yet to find a decent wintendo burning program
for actual production of cds. ALL programs I have used seem
to be specifically made for the purpose of copying warez.
DiscJuggler does this job well, mind you, but making a
collection of files is impossible without making a slow,
triple-sessioned cd with strange filename mangling. </rant>
OK, on to my answers...

Easy way: Use a GUI, like xcdroast. I've tried a few others,
but using xcdroast saves me money, as I won't burn coasters :)
Slightly less easy:
Optional flags are...
-A "<application ID>"
-p "<your name?>" (preparer ID)
-P "<your company?>" (publisher ID)
-J (also generates Joliet (microscoff) dir info)
-L (if you want to include files starting with a dot)
-o <name of ISO file>
-R (generates Rockridge dir info)
-r (as above, but you won't need to be root to read the cd)
-T (this generates translation tables for long filenames)
-v (verbose - always use this for diagnosing errors)
. (you should be in the directory with all the data)
Example: Create windoze-readable cd w/files in dir 'mp3image'
mkisofs -o myiso.iso -A "MP3Z!!!" -p "Geek" -P "GeeksRUs"
-r -J -v mp3image/
I still prefer xcdroast, though.
