Yes, but this is only part of the story. This will produce an iso file 
image called cdimage.iso. Some of the rest of the story might be:

1.)	You can give the image any name you want;
2.)	There may be other options you might want to specify. Do:

	mkisofs --help 2>&1 |more

	to see what the options are;
3.)	There's still the business of creating a cdrom from the iso image 
file. For that you need cdrecord, and you may need to install scsi 
emmulation if you don't have scsi already, somehow;
