Won't he need to do a genhdlist also as he's changed
the packages on the disc?  (I don't think TRANS.TBL is
for anything except allowing filenames to be read on
windows systems).

In order to make the cd bootable then it can be burnt
with cdrecord under linux using:

cdrecord -o modified1.iso -b isolinux.bin -c boot.cat
-no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-table-info
isolinux 

(run from the top level of the tree that is shown
above).

There's a couple of references about making your own
install discs:
Tony Nugent's (only covers up to 7.3?):
http://www.linuxworks.com.au/redhat-installer-howto.html

Brett Schwarz's (only covers up to
8):http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=6473

HTH,
