I was under the impression, from reading the READMEs on the CD that I'd
need to make it bootable, that the downloaded ISO isn't bootable in the
first place... This is probably wrong now that you bring it up :) But
I haven't tried to burn a CD from the virgin downloaded ISO that wasn't
changed by my palo. I'll try that.
