I got an interesting very similar looking problem with the Linux Kongress
CD. My CD is visibly busted (you can see the defects) and the driver or
isofs is locking the machine dead after about 3 retries. I guess someone
is getting a bad metadata block and infinite looping.

If the isofs or sbpcd person would like the CD in question popped in the post
just ask
