Can you be somewhat more specific? What is the error that you get?
Is your system set up to boot from DVD?
> # growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=8.0-BETA4............... what's wrong?
Does the checksum of the DVD image match the one that you can find on the FTP
If you run 'file' on the image, does it say that it is a bootable ISO 9660
filesystem? Ditto for the burned DVD?
