i tweaked the wiki page to emphasize that, yes, it *is* the jigdo-lite
command that you run -- that wasn't a typo, as a couple commenters
might have thought.

and i added the commands to unmount the DVD from under /media and
remount it under /mnt to get around the issue with the initial mount
point having embedded spaces, for those who aren't familiar with
manually mounting media.
