  Blocksize is actually very critical in imaging any but ISO9660, or
native-to-the-host-os filesystems. Try doing a dd image of an AIX mkcd
bootable backup cd with a blocksize of 512 (which is the default if bs
is not specified).
  I'll grant that I should have specified bs=<lowest blocksize used on
the master>....
