... appears to be OK on an old Toshiba 4000CDS.  It starts
the system and everything seems good; although I did not
want to proceed with installation.  This is the only machine
of mine which starts from the CD successfully.

On at least 3 desktop systems this CD yields only a black
screen
.  Is there any chance that the ISO 9660 or UDF
format has an idiosyncrasy which baffles many drives?

Thanks,             ... Peter E.

The black screen is more likely the result of A2 not running correctly on these desktop systems. We have bootet the CD successfully on many(!) systems. Typically, it is possible to get A2 running by some special configuration string, for more details, have a look at http://www.ocp.inf.ethz.ch/wiki/Documentation/Installation.
