<quote> You must have a bootable 1.44 MB floppy disk.  Create an exact
copy of this image by issuing the command

  dd if=/dev/fd0 of=boot.img bs=18k

Place this floppy image into the directory holding the collection of
your files (or into a subdirectory of it...).  Tell mkisofs about this
file with the option '-b' and also use '-c'.  For details read the
file README.eltorito included with the mkisofs-distro.<\unquote>

Thats from the CD-Writing HOWTO (Version 2.8.13), section 4.11, pg 22.
Hope it helps.
