So, I read some offhand notes on the Web about the ISOs being "hybrid"
files, e.g.: http://bugs.debian.org/558688
I haven't been able to figure out how to use them, though; the only
obvious thing to try given the above URL, dd, didn't produce a bootable
image. Maybe I'm supposed to use syslinux to make it bootable; haven't
had time to try this yet.
