Which is good for CD's, but not for DVD's.

DVD's are not iso9660, they're udf. I don't know why Jarod's guide
suggests iso9660, but I'd guess he was suggesting that for a CD drive,
not for a DVD drive used for both DVD's and CD's. Otherwise, it must be
to work around some problem in FC4, in which case you can just ignore me...
