Anyway, the Live burn boots in 2 computers, but not the third, which I burned it in. That's a new laptop too. Yeah, could be a bad ODD drive, but I doubt it... I think it has to do with re-burning the ISO, after doing it wrong the first time.
I don't know how to network boot the Live disk, but I'm tryin' now to load it in another USB disk, then transfer/copy to another partition in the target machine....
Unless something else might work.

I have had older computers before that would not boot CD's with something other than floppy emulation (using a 1.44 floppy image as the boot image). Good for DOS and old "loadlin" Linux distros, but pretty useless for modern Linux.
but I'm tryin' now to load it in another USB disk

I had this problem too, what you need to do is right click on it and select "save as" to save it somewhere like the desktop and then open it with a text editor.
You could always install Linux onto a USB drive and boot from that.
