Or dd the whole CD to disk if he has the space available (likely
nowadays), then mount in 'rw' as a iso9660 loopback device. Replace
$user with a valid username/location.
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/$user/temp.iso
mount -o loop -t iso9660 /home/$user/temp.iso /mnt/tempiso
That should be writable IIRC. If not, mess about with the mount
options until it is. Edit away and you should be fine.
