Burning a CD

        Hi. I live in Mexico. We have a terrible mail system, so I dont
dare order a CD. Yet I need to install linux on 10 performas 6360s
WITHOUT network capabilities.. So I decided to burn my own CD.
        I downloaded everything to a pentium running
linux, and used mkisofs to make the image using Rockridge. Everything
worked fine except that the install program is only capable of
partitioning and installing to msdos formated disks. It would seem that
the install script loads a diferent ramdisk.image (2nd stage) if it cannot
detect a macintosh CD.
        My guess is I need to burn the disk with rockridge extensions AND
with macintosh desktop files (desktop.db and desktop.df). Am I correct? If
so, how can I acomplish this?

        Thanks in advance for any advice.
