Update: Decided to try building an iso so entered the following commands

	lb clean
	lb config
	lb build

This completed successfully but produced a binary.img rather than a
binary.iso.  Tried

	qemu -hda binary.img

but this locked up the computer, even Alt-SysRq-b had no effect.  Had to
reboot.

Tried putting the image on a 4Gb USB stick and this worked, I was able to
boot Debian Live from the memory stick.  The system is limited as the
transfer created a 162Mb partition and the transferred image occupies
97% of the partition.
