The package is missing two dependencies, without which the script
won't run: mformat and xorriso.  xorriso is only available from EPEL.

So to use the script, enable EPEL (if you haven't already):

    yum install -y epel-release

Then install the two prerequisites:

    yum install -y mformat xorriso

I'll add the mformat dependency, and see what I can do about xorriso.
