Subject description: I burnt iso image to cd and booted from CD but got black screen.
 

After burning precise-5.4.1.iso, the CD shows BOOTCAT.BIN and BOOTTIMG.BIN and no other files. I created with Roxio EasyCD Creator ("create bootable CD") CD-RW, track at once, not finalized, 4xSpeed.
Boot goes to to black screen.
PC is WinXP with Pentium 4, 3GHz, 1GB RAM, NVidia adapter.

After failure I booted Windows and I noticed the CD had 2nd empty session. Not sure if this is normal. The disc Properties show CDFS file system, re-writable disc (although Properties> Settings shows read/only).

What should I try next to create a bootable LiveCD that works?

Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance,
John
