Trying to help out with the beta testing, I rsynced -beta # 8 Disc 1 before school this morning and tested it after I got home today. Still no joy with booting disc 1 on my server.  The boot.iso and earlier K12LTSP discs (4.0.1-1 and the 3. series) boot without any problem.  Beta #8 disc 1 will boot however in another box as does beta 2 also (FWIW, they both fail to start anaconda on this box). All discs (Khypermedia- branded CMC discs) were burnt at 8x in a Phillips 8x burner using cdrecord.   Let me know if you need any more information/want me to do anymore testing.
