Multi-boot CDs

In a rash moment I offered to make the H3 Hurd CD1 multi-boot.
Unfortunately I cannot get multi-boot to work.  I do not know if it is my
machine or me.

It's a 850 MHz Celeron, 6VMML MB, VT8601A/VT82C686B chipset with 256 MB
RAM. I would think that it is modern enough to be able to multi-boot a CD.

I have burnt and tried 4-5 different CDs (thank heavens for CD-RWs), the
last was burnt with,

mkisofs -r -T \
-b boot/rescue.bin -c boot/boot.catalog \
-eltorito-alt-boot -b boot/compact.bin \
-eltorito-alt-boot -b boot/idepci.bin \
-eltorito-alt-boot -b boot/ide.bin \
/b5/debian/yacs-hurd/sid-hurd-i386/boot1 M-boot-test.iso \
| cdrecord -v speed=8 dev=0,0 -

"/b5/debian/yacs-hurd/sid-hurd-i386/boot1/boot"  has the four boot images

Any idea of where I am going wrong?
