Has the kernel lied to you before? I'm sure there is no 
"emulation" going on and I don't know what that would mean in 
this context. VCDs do have a file in the ISO9660 filesystem that 
represents the movie, but the movie is actually contained in its 
own separate track. I don't think you can get the MPEG PS by 
reading that file using an ISO9660 driver. That's why MPlayer 
reads the CD directly rather than mounting a filesystem on it. 
I'm no expert, so you'd better read detailed descriptions like 
the following for authoritative answers.
