       genisovh - Make CD-ROMs bootable for SGI MIPS machines


       genisovh <isofile> <name:sblock,size> ...


       genisovh  creates  a Disk Volume Header (dvh) on a CD image and records
       bootable images therein. This allows the SGI  firmware  to  boot  those
       images  without needing knowledge about the filesystem on the CD image.
       Files in the CD image are assumed to be contiguous.


       isofile The CD image filename.

       name:sblock,size The name which shows up in  the  Disk  Volume  Header,
       followed  by  the starting block of the file and the number of bytes it
       occupies. This argument can be given  several  times  to  provide  boot
       alternatives.  The blocks are 512 byte long.
