Typically most Windows based CD burner programs write
in Joliet, a MS specific CD format. You really want
standare ISO format (9660 or some such) or for UNIX
rock ridge extensions to allow long filenames, etc.
Some CD burner programs will allow creation of CDs
that have both Joliet and Rock Ridge extensions so
that long filenames are readable under both MS Windows
and UNIX. I don't know about OS/2 but this should
give you some ideas.
I use cdrecord while running under either SPARC
or X86 (Intel) Solaris (Sun's version of UNIX)
and there is also a Win32 version of cdrecord.
It is freeware and not a "friendly" to use as
the Windows programs but is more flexible in
that it can create CDs usable on UNIX and Windows.
There may even be some
