I successfully installed and booted up to the base system using files that I put on the mac file system (thanks to some helpful guides available on the website) However, when attempt to point the install at the CD (/dev/sr0) to continue installation after the reboot, the CD is accessed (I see the LED flashing) then I get an error indicating that the CD in not an official image.

I burrned the CD from the image at:
