i only have a couple more black cd-r discs left; have wasted many since
i WAS ABLE to install PC-BSD.  the optical [dvd/cd] drive =does= read
my ancient 5.3 CD set, but it reads nothing i burn.  i have tried
burning 8.0 bootonly.iso on the laptop (via k3b), and tried the same
from my twin optical drives here on my desktop.  

can anybody suggest what i'm doing wrong?
