As far as I can tell, the problem is the boot order in the BIOS. This Live CD doesn't boot like most bootable CDs. The systems in question only allow for the following boot orders with the CD: C,CDROM,A or CDROM,C,A. This disc appears to need CDROM,A,C to boot. No other bootable CD I have shows this deficiency. Very strange, but this is a fairly common BIOS. It's also the latest for the model, so I can't fix it by updating the BIOS. I guess I need to email the Live CD author and have him look at the Linux CDs and use the same method they do for making bootable CDs.
