Haven't used CD's in a long time....  So, I do happen to have some old
ones laying around.  I had 2 types.  One type is no-brand with no
labeling to speak of...well except for the cute blue dolphins.  The
other is Sony branded with 700MB embossed. 

I haven't had a chance to try to boot them yet....my 64-bit system is
occupied...but the no-brand disk failed the verify after burn while the
Sony CD passed.

I seem to recall the CD-R standard to guarantee only 650MB but that you
could get more when they started to manufacture the CD to higher
