I had not yet tried mounting an iso image of the disk.

Strangely, I have not been able to rip the cd to an iso.  I get the
following error:

$ dd if=/dev/cdrom1 of=image.iso bs=2k
dd: reading `/dev/cdrom1': Input/output error
2886+0 records in
2886+0 records out
5910528 bytes (5.9 MB) copied, 14.78 s, 400 kB/s

This exact same error happens on two different machines, so it's not
likely a hardware problem.  The cd itself is brand new, and there are
no visible flaws, so it's not likely a problem with the disk.  I
wonder if Rosetta has implemented some sort of copy protection?
