I have been experiencing similar broblem with both my SS4 and SS5.  My
question would be how are the images burnt.  I have descovered that some
PC burners dont realy seem to handle iso images properly i had to
upgrade a version of nero before i could get it to write linux iso's. I
am still waiting for the time to re test this theory with NetBSD.
