The plextor I have you can switch it to 512 byte blocks so I tried both 
settings. I guess I need to write the ISO different that I have. For now 
I used toast in OS X but I guess I need to try cdrecord under bsd maybe. 
Toast thinks it's an invalid iso so I don't know if it changes anything 
while writing.

Gonna keep on trying. Can't wait to get this box online.
