Hi - the village idiot again-

Did your burn the disk as slow as possible?  I had a hell of a time
burning an iso disk on Ubuntu but that does seem to be the problem
since you are using Sir Bill.  Have you tried another live cd like
knoppix to make sure it is not the drive or something with the
computer construction.  I have popped the live disk into about 10
different computers and never had a problem.

Sorry I can not be better assistance but hopefully someone who knows
something will chime in.
