I do not know if I understand you, but my tool cannot be used to 
_extract_ boot sectors. It just writes the boot info table to a file 
inside the iso image and copies the first 2kB of this file to another 
file inside the iso image.

If you want to extract a boot sector of a CD or CD image, you have to 
use another tool. As I did not know cdfs before, I have written a bash 
script (with very limited features) to extract CD boot sectors. Do you 
want this tool instead?
