AFAIK, there is no way to do this :) the iso filesystem is inherently
read-only (better, is marked as read-only once is finalized after
writing to disk). Someone suggested to do it, I remarked that this
wouldn't work and suggested use of iso-master. Someone else said that
you could use the archive application to extract/edit/put back files,
but I never tried. Another suggestion was to extract the files, edit
them and then put them back creating a (new) iso immage. IIRC the latter
is the method suggested by ubuntu for customizing install CDs.
