Toast almost certainly won't produce anything that is bootable, unless
you can copy an entire SCSI disk to the CD. If you can do that,
that's the way to go. Otherwise, cdrecord might work. A direct
SCSI-to-SCSI copy won't work because you have to tell the drive you're
going to write a CD before you can start writing it.
