no actually there are a dozen partitions on there CD to accomidate
miboot, this incidently makes there CD impossible to mount under linux
(AFAICT).  this is actually the first time i have heard of anyone
succesfully booting that CD on a newworld machine.

the difference here is probably just that the CD has a different OF
path then the internel hard disk.
