Well that _is_ something I can help with.

Perhaps after I get the rsync done I will create a ISO-9660 ISO and
then burn it to a DVD and test.  If all goes well I can then provide
the DVD ISO for you.

That is the problem that I am hitting.

Which reminds me .. perhaps I can dump the ISO image that I will
create onto that second hard disk as a simple foo.iso file ?  Or am I
dreaming there ?

Sorry for these noobish questions .. I am a much better Solaris guy
than a Linux guy and I often have to flail about with coffee in order
to get these things to work :-)
