Sorry for the delay. Here's what I've tried/found.
I did another burn at a slower speed as you suggested. Prior to this I
confirmed that the MD5Sum matched the one listed on the download site.
The burn finished without error. Booting from the burnt CD failed in

which also failed in an identical manner. On an Indigo2 it also
failed, however since video wasn't working, I couldn't see the error.

Of interest is that the RC5 disk does boot perfectly, however since

anything usefull with it!
Can anyone help? I would really like to get these machines functional!
Thanks in advance.
