Ironic that you say that, since I don't ever have much luck burning 
disks (CD or DVD) under Linux; in fact, worse luck than using XPs native 
burner support.  For me it's harder to predict and control bus and 
system load under Linux than Windows (especially since the PCI bus on 
the Linux box is nearly at capacity).  I hardly ever have a problem with 
Nero tho, hence why I still pay for the license.

Since it's an image, Nero shouldn't be doing anything do it, but I'll 
try transferring over the DVD burner when I get a chance to shut the 
server down to see if that helps.  I suspect this will only be an 
elimination step, however.

I'll let you know my results.
