I used cdrecord under Linux. I think a number of people have also burned
the ISO with Easy CD Creator under WinNT, so I guess anything is

If you can't mount the CD in the recorder that burned it, then something
is definately messed up. Try burning again -- I don't think RAW mode is
exactly what you want.
If at all possible, I would recommend you try a network installation
instead. There have been many fixes made since the 2.4.0 kernel that
shipped with 0.9.2 (hell, my 720/50 almost works! :-)).
Anyway, good luck!
