Whats here below is with the CD Install Discs. These are the sames
issues in my opinion.

Just to my curiosity in doing a write up for something centos related.
This is what happened; Downloaded centos 5.1 Disc used "Infra View"
under Windows to burn the image. When booting with the just burned image
it failed not finding vmlinuz. When the disc is burned with cdrtools
under X CD Roast the disc did not fail when used to boot the install.

Infra View was obtained from sorceforge and installed under Windows XP
Home Edition. This was on a Compact Presario Desktop. Both discs were
burned at a rate of 4x.
