I recently went through a heck of a time trying to get RH8 installed on a drive
the BIOS couldn't see, with no working floppy on the machine. mkbootdisk's man
page doesn't mention --iso at all.

Also, just a suggestion, it might be nice to offer the option of a boot CD
during install. This would have saved me a good six hours of swapping around IDE

I agree with your suggestion - but you should file it under Component ==
distribution, priority = enhancement.  Otherwise, it's just a comment in another
