i have a similar situation -- i've burnt the cd-rom from both
mac and windows (as an iso file, as you mentioned to the OP
above), i've tried two cd-rom drives in the target machine... 
and it'll boot SOME cd-rom's but not the one i want it to boot
from, of course!


I use Debian/GNU Linux version 2.2;
