D'Oh!  It was obvious right after I sent the message; underscore instead of dash in
live_dir.  Sigh. HOWEVER, even after correcting that, it STILL doesn't boot; same
exact message as before.  I have a suspicion that it's not finding the USB key
during the device scan, given that I can't find the USB key in /dev in rdshell.

Possibly a hardware incompatibility? (I haven't been able to test a LiveCD in
the optical drive yet, but will do so now.)
