It doesnt find any files because they arent in os/i386/CentOS - but I
guess I could mount them like that - seems a pain though.

What we need is a script - isos are in current dir - run it and it
created the dvd - hey - just like mkdvdiso.sh :)

that would probably fix it

not if you have to run it 4 times :(
