Why don't you try it again, and this time don't add an extra /dev.
Bet that works.
You're right- that worked fine (now if I can only get it to boot)
What I found so far:
All three CDs have the exact same Md5sum- identical to the downloaded file and identical to the published Md5sum (notwithstanding that a new version was released today- guess how confused I was trying to compare the new Md5sum to the old download?? But finally figured it out)
I also downloaded the MiniMe version and compared both the downloaded file and the CD burned from it to the published Md5sum for MiniMe-- perfect match, but still not booting from CD (defaults to Grub from the old install)
I double/double checked boot sequence-- DVD/CD is still listed as 1st boot device. When I boot with CD in closed tray, the light blinks several times and then goes to Grub for 2009
Didn't get to try reinstalling old CD-Rom yet; hopefully can do that later this evening
Just thought I'd get back to you and report my [was going to say progress] current position
Thanks for your help
