How to create an ISO Image from files on my hard drive (freeware)

Can someone recommend a freeware application that can be used to create an ISO image from files I have on my hard drive?

I can copy the files to a DVD and then create an ISO image from the DVD, but this seems like there is an unnecessary step (creating the physical DVD).  I would like to go directly from the file system to an ISO image without creating a DVD.

I believe this can be done with some commercial applications like Nero.  I am looking for freeware or shareware.
