mkisofs -a -J -o /store/im.iso -r -v -V "SWORD_20000201" /store/im/

where /store/im.iso is the full path to your output iso file
and /store/im/ is the directory to make into the iso
"SWORD_20000201" is the CD label.

I've never tried this.  I've always done a:
mount -o loop -t iso9660 /store/im.iso /mnt/iso/
mkdir /store/im
cd /store/im
cp -a /mnt/iso/* .

and then used mkisofs to build a new image.

Let me know what you find out.
