Hmm, this seems to be a non-starter. The CD-ROM comes up as blk0; EFI
doesn't seem to be able to find a filesystem on it. I built the CD
using jigdo last week from the testing distribution; will this not work?
I also have a Red Hat AS CD, and it *can* find a filesystem on that, but
I'd rather try Debian first...
