Well…I found few messages about it, and it looks like people aren't
sure about the cause…software bug ? BIOS bug ? Isolinux guys report it
to BIOS, and of course we don't hear about BIOS guys.
So pick your choice ;)
Anyway, I haven't found any other solution…and once I found the 6.0
trick I stopped research here.

I took a look at the centos bugs and found this.


I am not sure if my problem is related to this particular problem, but
there was a similar note attached to this bug, I also added a note.

It does not look to me like anyone is addressing the problem.  I am glad
the 6.0 archive is available.  I will try your suggestion next.

Thanks for your help!!!!
