CDROM Boot Hangs But Only Under 6.x

I have 18 brand new Gateway towers at work (I can supply the model
numbers after school restarts next week). I wanted to clone them using
dd and an external usb hard drive. I couldn't boot 6.x or 7.x CDs on
any of the boxes, but I was able to install 7 (I didn't try 6.x) on a
usb stick, set the BIOS to boot from the device and run FreeBSD (and dd)
These machines have CDRW/DVDR drives installed. I've had no problem
running any content based media from them at all, but I haven't tried
booting any other media (like WinXP) from them, either.
