OK, I loaded the DVD disk contents to the USB hard drive. But I'm
wondinger if I should be copying the iso file itself. When I boot the
DVD iso file, I eventually get to a menu that includes /dev/sda1 and
asks for a directory holding "images". I've tried putting several things
here (like "images") but it reports "Failed to read
directory /tmp/hdimage/images: No such file or directory."
