$ mkcd dirname
Because you've pointed
mkcd at a directory it will call

If you wish you can exert finer control over things by making the ISO image
mkcd if used as above)
make the ISO9660 image in the current directory
unless you use the -o option.
this is primarily because generic places like /tmp
often don't have CD-sized amounts of free space.
These scripts have a few options but are deliberately short on knobs to twiddle. They're are naturally just wrappers for Jörg Schilling's [http://www.fokus.gmd.de/research/cc/glone/employees/joerg.schilling/ excellent mkisofs and cdrecord utilites [http://www.fokus.gmd.de/research/cc/glone/employees/joerg.schilling/private/mkisofs.html], which have a great many knobs.
These are just scripts.
Install them in your execution
It will be necessary to tell

You can also specify the CD burner

or the /etc/mkcdrc or
see the manual entries for details.
