I am having similar problems (see "Isoliux 2.0+ won't boot from DVD" in
the archives). 1.75 works for me where 2.0+ won't. I sent some discs
to HPA, and he is supposed to be looking at them, but I haven't heard
anything yet. I tried using mkisofs -sort isolinux/iso.sort to move the
isolinux directory to the first part of the disc, but that didn't help.
I found that if I removed the SRPMS directory (on my Red Hat discs), or
removed the RedHat/RPMS directory, it would work. What does your
directory structure look like? Try removing directories to see if it boots.
