OK, burned the straight download ISO the way that works with EasyCD 
Creator, but it still gives me the same message as last time, in the 
same place as last time.

<snip of seg 0-3 loads>
Error: read from boot device failed( status = -4)
byteio_read: seekread() returned -1 expected 2048
error:  segment 0 read() failed

The CD was burned at 2x and the discs are 4x certified (PNY).  The CD is 
external on the 50 pin narrow bus (core.SCSI.2.0)  However, it does not 
have termination on the external bus.  The internal narrow SCSI devices 
*do* have termination (ie the DDS2 tape drive).  I have switched the CD 
with the DDS2 drive before, but not this time with the new correct 
burn.  Could termination be an issue here and should I try putting the 
CD drive internally with termination?

64Mb x 2
2.1GB FW differential SCSI
DDS2 narrow tape drive
External narrow CD drive
Standard blah blah graphics

Thanks in advance,
