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.
