I had the same problem, then I saw where Marshall Heartley posted a fix for
making this iso into a bootable cd on SLE on May 5th:

"You can try and burn it from the command line. Like so: cdrecord dev=0,0,0
speed=12 -eject -data (name of iso including the extension). Substitute for
the correct device, speed and name of image file on your system. I did burn a
Live CD and it works very well for me here."

I tried his suggestion, and only had to put the name and location of the iso
image (Desktop/LiveCD-9.1-01.iso for me) into his command line example - my
laptop figured correctly that dev=0,0,0 was pointing to the built in burner.
Anyway, I got a nice, bootable CD, and 9.1 certainly looks nice.
