If you want 1:1 copies of your CDs, you shouldn't try to create a new ISO image from filesystem level (the "Burn Files" option does that, and that's why you have to enter a new name etc, because it won't be exact copy of a CD). It would be same to copy files from a CD to a directory on HD to backup files then.
You probably want to get a raw copy of the CD as an (ISO) image which preserves everything as on the original CD. To achieve this on Jalapeno you should select "Copy Tracks" and then "Save As..." from the pull-down menu to save an image file of the CD. It seems that Jalapeno creates .rcd (readcd?) image, which doesn't seem to be an ISO image... I guess it'll be fine to have a backup which can be burned back to a CD, but disadvantage is that you can't mount it to have easy access to stuff inside the image, like you could do with an ISO image.
I've still been using MakeCD to create standard ISO images on MorphOS, and there must be several other ways and programs too. Basically copying CD image from RAWDISK: device should also create an ISO image, but for some reason it shows a file of 0 bytes here for a CD now... hmm....
