I don't know what's going on but instead of wasting CD-Rs you can mount
the iso file directly with the loop device. For example, instead of
burning the iso you can do:
mount file.iso /mnt/whatever -o loop
Then you can see the content of the iso in /mnt/whatever. If what you
see is a new iso file, you can try to mount this file too :)
mount /mnt/whatever/debian\ xxx.iso /mnt/whatever2 -o loop
So you can check what you would get if you burned the file.
thank you, jeremie for your answer. and,
yes i loop-mounted the image.iso (made under woody) and so i could read
what is in this file, which seems to be allright. yet this cdrom i made
under woody with cdrecord out of this image does not boot, nor under
woody vanilla-kernel nor under sarge.
so i made another cdrom with sarge and - lo - out came a bootable cdrom
which i gonna give to my friend-musician.
so the queation remains: why does sarge make bootable cdroms
(cdimage.iso's) and woody not. anybody who knows the answer on that
however: maybe can cdrtoast be of some help under woody: i gonna spend
one more cdrom on this. cost me 60 eurocents (one old dutch guilder and
35 cents) and some reading and googling.
