Did exactly that and discovered that copying an ISO image to a CD is not enough to achieve booting. Now downloaded the free CDBurnerXP (which also runs on Vista) and this will burn an ISO image and automatically include the boot sector.

I've also scrounged a beefier PC, so I'm making progress.

Thanks for your advice (and also to Tom, Les and g),
