Suse 9.1 Live CD will not boot

I am having a problem with Suse 9.1

I downloaded the ISO and burned it to a CD (no errors... burned it with Nero)

I put the CD in, but the computer will not boot from it. I thought it was from my hardware... but I tested my Windows XP cd in and it got that with no problem (ie: I could boot from it). What am I doing wrong or how can I Fix this?

Thanks for any advice in advance.

Ive not had any problems with MandrakeLive or a Sun Desktop CD I got with a magazine a while back.. This one is giving me probs though.

I re-burned a second-copy following the directions exactly and it still did not work.. same results.

Any other ideas?

I am running suse since last september. SuSE 8.2 live booted ok. SuSE 8.2 installed hd ok. SuSE 9.0 live cd booted ok, hd installed ok.
SuSE 9.1 live cd won't boot. BUT SuSe 9.1 install hd ok.
I'm not sure why.

If you wanna play around with it, download the 9. 1 personal iso. It's already available.
