I don't think that would do... The iso itself is totally healthy, with matching md5, and the 'incriminated directories' (those that cause the i/o error when on the CD) behave more than correctly, returning the right checksum, allowing copies of themselves etc...

But when it came to transfer this completely sane package to a CD-R, those folders were tranferred in an (incomplete?) way on the CD.

With the same hardware, I was able to burn the Debian cdinst (160MB), and get the rest off the internet...

Maybe Ubuntu's "690" MB is too edgy for 700MB mediums??
