I pass '-oac copy' to mencoder, then ogmmerge has a '-A' option that 
discards the audio from the avi file.

Hmm...  That's interesting to hear, but I've never seen anything like 
it, and I have experience with literally hundreds upon hundres of 
CD-ROMs, spaning over 2-dozen brands, and I have yet to run into one 
that didn't work with any CDs I've overburned (although I typically stay 
below 715MB).

I don't know what to tell you, I've got to go with my own experience. 
Of course, if one in a million CD-ROMs can't read it, it's really not 
the end of the world for me.
