Ah, it's from the bootloader.
Hrm. Does the same CD work in other machines? One possibility is that
it's corrupted somehow, although that admittedly seems unlikely if you
see the same behavior from 5.1RC4 and 5.0.2.
The message should certainly not be garble.
Does the file /boot.cfg on the CD contain garble? I think you can
print (text) files from the bootloader but I don't remember how...
