It failed to boot an IBM Aptiva 2161-C8E desktop with a 1/19/1997
BIOS. This 166Mhz Pentium box has been my trusty machine for 5 years,
and boots the potato r3 CD and also another woody netinst ISO (the one
found starting at www.debian.org, based on boot floppies 3.0.19 and
downloaded from http://people.debian.org/~ieure/netinst, which is also
SYSLINUX based and it works great on this machine).

Anyone clue me into why my IBM won't boot this CD?

Raphael's ISO works boots up just great on a Compaq Armada M300
laptop, and my Soyo Dragon+ based desktop (Award BIOS, KT266A, which
also works with Raphael's multiboot images).
