Try "isoinfo -d". This program is in the mkisofs RPM.

The information will be under Eltorito validation header.

Thanks, Mogens. Something very mysterious is happening. I get

Eltorito validation header:
   Hid 1
   Arch 0 (x86)
   ID ''
   Key 55 AA
   Eltorito defaultboot header:
       Bootid 88 (bootable)
       Boot media 0 (No Emulation Boot)
       Load segment 0
       Sys type 0
       Nsect 4
       Bootoff 30 48

and, notwithstanding, the CD does NOT boot. Any ideas?

Paul
