Can I then suggest that the old non-working images be removed from the
FTP site so that other people don't waste time trying them? (And the
installer could detect the kernel version mismatch, if the latest
version doesn't already do so.)

I tried it, and the disc was detected this time. I didn't get much
further, however, because my wife told me to "turn that bloody thing
off" because she wanted a lift to work. I'll let you know if there are
any other problems when I continue the process later ...
