Strange DVD issue

I burned FC6t1 to a DVD and verified it.  The DVD automounts on insertion on 
this box.  I then tried to boot my old laptop from the DVD, and the drive 
ground on as though there was an imbalance, unable to boot.  I took the disk 
to another box, and it booted to the install screen without problems.

I put a Knoppix DVD into the laptop drive, and that boots OK.

This is reminding me of problems reported on the Mandriva lists.  As I recall, 
it was said that two versions of boot were available, one on CD1 and one on 
CD2 to get round the physical problems some people were experiencing.  Is 
this a real problem, or a figment of my ancient laptop?
