Ahh, I think I see what's happened.  Because you didn't specify an
alternate location for the bootxx_cd9660 bootblocks, they're living
from block 1 to block 15.  Then the alpha installboot comes along and
happily does the same :-(.  You'll need to use either the -a option to
installboot to append the bootblocks to the image, or the -s option and
have the bootblocks located in the middle of the iso image.  Look at the
last part of the EXAMPLES section of the pmax installboot manpage.
