    I wasn't seeing a particular issue other then I noticed packet mode
    wasn't on, and I remembered an earlier thread on the lists where we
    decided we wanted to use packet mode by default.

    The img file was creating the boot sector using fdisk -IB, which installs
    a more traditional MBR image which I do not believe uses packet mode.
    The fdisk MBR image is not compatible with bootcfg's MBR image.

    boot0cfg installs the MBR which has the packet mode option in it.
