I think I spoke too soon.  I toasted to a different brand CDR and it
worked fine on both boxes.  Very smooth indeed!  Good work guys.

The only not-currently-documented problem I saw that I can't find the
source to tell if it's fixed or not is where it tells you that
ftp.archlinux.org is throttled and to pick "an other" mirror instead of
"another" mirror.  If that's the worse flaw we have, we're in good
shape :)
