This used to work with older versions of Fedora Core ISO images, too.
For instance, this from my "sent" folder:

$ isodebug /dev/cdrom
ISO-9660 image created at Mon Nov  3 19:16:00 2003

Cmdline: 'mkisofs 1.14 -A FC/1 i386 -V FC/1 i386 -J -R -v -T -x ./lost+found -o 
/mnt/redhat/scratch/Yarrow-1.7/i386/ftp-isos/Yarrow-1.7-i386-disc1-ftp.iso -b is
olinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-i
nfo-table .'


Doesn't seem to work with FC3T3, and a brief look with a hex-editor
didn't turn up anything either. Maybe it's a new version/option of
mkisofs which no longer stores that info.
