Actually, yes XP2 with the newest Nero. However, the burns are still not 
bootable even when I'm burning fresh, checksum'd .iso's in Ubuntu with 
Nautilus's built-in ISO burning mechanism. Burns of Knoppix, Mepix, and 
a half-dozen other distros boot fine, whether I burn them in XP2 or 
Linux. I'm not sure if it's the iso's or my system. As I've managed to 
get around this by using the boot.iso to do a network install, it hasn't 
been a big deal to me.

Btw, very happy that B5 fixes the dependency issues. Will install and 
test tonight!
