And now things have broken again for the image including firmware. :-(
Another option is to increase the size of the ISO a little, but we're
already very close to the limit of what will fit on a 650 MB CD.
I've suggested raising the CD size from 650 to 700 MB in the past and
people didn't like it, but that was quite a while ago. I can't find
any 650MB CD-R blanks available anywhere these days...
