I've downloaded the .iso image twice and burned it 3 times using two different machines. I get the same problem each time. The boot CD is not recognized and the machine tries to boot from the hard disk.

I booted the system from an Ubuntu 8,10 disk and just finished install Etch+1/2 on it so there is nothing wrong with the machine.
The notes on the Etch+1/2 install indicate it's using the Lenny RC1 installer so I suspect it's not a problem with the installer either. It may be the .iso image simply doesn't have the boot code on it.
