Default Bootonly CD Fails

This afternoon, I downloaded a "bootonly" ISO data set from an ftp site. After burning to a CD, the root directory contains a boot directory, and two files, boot.catalog and and cdrom.inf.

The cdrom.inf file identifies the version: CD_VERSION = 7.1-RC2

The attempted boot from the CD ROM results with the following messages:

CD Loader 1.2

Building the boot loader arguments
Looking up /BOOT/LOADER . . .file not found
Looking up /boot/loader . . .file not found

Boot failed

In fact, the file /boot/loader does exist on the CD. (252KB dated 12/23/2008 @ 6:30 AM)

I've searched the forum for similar, but no hits. Since this is a CD ROM disk, then I can't modify anything on the disk per the original "de-ISO" operation (burned with Nero on an Windoze box). Suggestions please
