That's interesting because it says the CD is bootable.  But I think I need to 
try the suggestions of Marc and Jonathan.  I did choose "data CD" and I don't 
remember if I chose "iso."  I've got to get to a meeting.  I'll try to 
re-burn later tonight, or tomorrow.

I found this to be a fascinating command.  It shows a lot of files and 
directories that do not show up if I mount the CD itself in the regular 
manner.  And those files suggest ways to boot by way of a floppy should the 
CD not boot.  I don't know what this command does exactly, but it's nice.

So here's a question.  When one is done with this command, does one issue some 
sort of umount command?

Thanks Pete, and Mark and Jonathan.
