YES!  Gohd knows why they are still creating the cdrom images with
the ugly TRANS.TBL stuff in there.  (These files are standard with
rockridge extensions for unix being used, they also create the ugly
and usually empty rr_moved/ directories.  It is possible to tell
mkisofs not to do it like this).

	cd <root_directory_of_installation image>
	find -name TRANS.TBL -exec rm -f {} \;

Definitely do this on an NFS install image!  (Total waste of space).

I'm not sure about rh7.0, but if there was a TRANS.TBL left in
RedHat/RPMS/ then genhdlist would barf and fall over with a segfault
and coredump (in RedHat/RPMS/ -- which would continue to cause core
dumps until both non-rpm files where removed).

When you make your iso image with mkisofs, tell mkisofs (with the
appropriate command-line switches) that you want to create a boot
image with images/boot.img.  (I put the boot.cat file into
RedHat/base/ but you can put this bootfile "pointer" anywhere).
