I was thinking of including an actual symlink on the CD.

However, I just realized that ISO-9660 doesn't support symlinks without
Rock Ridge extensions (and maybe it doesn't even support them *with* RR
extensions, I'm not sure).  Then again, straight ISO-9660 doesn't
support lowercase filenames, either, or ones longer than 14 characters.

Well, wait a minute -- is that even how this boot CD works?  (I haven't
yet tried it.)  Or is there an ext3 FS-in-a-file somewhere?
