[hfs-user] Wrapper and Readme

Hi,
I just tried it - and it works...  Thanks for the tip!

Btw. Mark had written sth about Disk First Aid and the alternate volume
header - one problem I've been having right from the start is that Disk
First Aid is unable to read my CD and Norton Disk Doctor detects 'major
problems' on my CD. It seems as though this is due to the runout-blocks
being  appended to the end of my image i.e. after the sector in which the
alternate volume header is present. This doesn't really disturb me too much
since the Mac mounts my CD's and reads them without a problem but I'd like
to know if there's sth I can do to overcome this.
