I assume the cd is either badly burned, or we screwed it up in the last
Are you able to select the CD drive in the SMS menu at all? What
firmware level do you have?
I remember even the oldest firmware could read all CDs just fine.

You can try to burn a minimal iso yourself.

mkdir testcd
mkdir testcd/boot
cp /cdrom/boot/zImage.prep.initrd testcd/boot

mkisofs -prep-boot boot/zImage.prep.initrd -r -v -o test.iso testcd
