Well, I got silo 0.8.5 from ultrapenguin dist.
Now I get the following error:

  Read error on block 513676
  Internal error while loading physical blocks from device

I checked the CD medium: it does not contains any error.
The CD is 257361 2K-sectors long (ie. 514722 blocks if I suppose a block size
of 1024, right ?).

What's wrong now ?
I tried a compressed ramdisk.  Do I need to uncompress it before putting it on
the CD ?
Do the files being read by silo have to reside at the beginning of the disk ?

Thanks in advance.
