Hmm... strange! Did u try cdrecord ?
I have used cdrecord to write boot CDs for Solaris 8, FreeBSD, Mandrake 8 etc
and never had any problems.
If the ISO image is built with the el-torito flag then all u need to do is just
burn the image. So if its a stock ISO image, then u should'nt have any
problems. If u built the image, then checkout the man page for mkisofs
(especially lookout for "-b")
