Actually, I said (and it's true) that the burner was a Pioneer DVD
+/-RW DL 18x, with which I have so far had pretty good luck.  It turns
out that the image was bad, which I missed....

The reader is a Teac CD-540E CD drive, but the original iso image that
came down was no good.

I'm somewhat fond of TDK, but their newer, high-speed (16x+) DVDs have
been pretty iffy for me - the old ones (4x), and their CDs, are rock
solid, and the newer Memorex and Sony discs have been fairly reliable
for me (but Costco only carries TDK - foo).
