Well, it certainly *should* be a bootable CD, though I don't test the CD
images very frequently since netbooting is way easier and my only rewritable
media on hand are DVD+RW which the alpha no longer holds the drive for. :)

The file structure on the disk in question checks out, with a valid
aboot.conf in etc/ and a healthy-looking boot/ directory.  I'll try to do an
actual test here this week, but if others on the list could confirm their
own experiences with recent d-i daily images, that'd be keen.

What version of SRM do you have?
