What distro the CD is written on shouldn't matter - provided it is
written correctly (you did check the md5sum).  Note that some Windows
burners `helpfully' pad iso images; thus always giving incorrect md5sum;
even for correctly written CDs.

Judging by the least thread you posted here the problem is that OpenBoot
(the firmware; kind of like what the PC's BIOS would be if it was
properly designed) can't find the cdrom device.  'cdrom' is usually an
alias (like a symlink) for the SCSI cdrom.  It's possible the alias is
missing or that a hardware change means that it's not in the expected
place.  Have a look at an OpenBoot reference for how to change the alias
or how to specify where in OpenBoot's 'filesystem' the cd drive is.
