Mount and boot are really two different things.  Linux doesn't mind
2048-byte blocks, but the boot prom HATES it.

The Plextors work 100% IF they have the jumper set to 512-byte blocks.
They are really nice because most CD-ROMs are fixed at 2048-byte.
Some Toshibas have jumpers you cut to set them to 512-byte, which
is good, but not as nice as the plextors.

Hope this helps.
