What command did you use to make the cd? You need to use a byte for byte
duplicator in order to make the cd from the image. Did you use Linux to make
the cd with dd if=[/file/cd/image] of=[/device/name/of/cdwriter] or did you
use a mac utility? A byte for byte duplicator will put the filesystem on the
cd for you as it is contained in the image.
