I will try to do that, though it may mean hacking into the isofs driver.

I haven't gotten that far, yet. How well it works depends a lot on how much
of the information about the disk can be read by Supermount 2 when the disk
is inserted.

will need assistance with the packet-writing support. I am only planning to
do this for the 2.5.x and later kernels, so if anyone else wishes to
back-port it to an older kerenl series, by all means do so. I have wanted to
make some kind of contribution to this project for some time and I feel that
this is something that will be useful.
