Again, I'm not the only person experiencing this.  It's not a bad ISO, it 
happened from from multiple images, downloaded from different 
computers.  That's a lot like Linux itself - for some people you can load 
it on a computer with no problem, and others nothing goes right.   I will 
note that the first CD I burned has errors, but I was able to load and run 
Ubuntu on a Via Epia MII system with no issues using it.

And, as pointed out, the same ISO burns fine to a DVD-R.

I merely posted this observation to try and prevent someone else from the 
headaches I had.   I really don't want to get into a debate about it.  It's 
just a heads up if you burn a CD from the ISO and it doesn't work, try a 
DVD-R instead.  That's all.   I spent a few evenings being stubborn and 
trying to make it work with a CD just once.  And I couldn't.
