OK, figured it out.  What the QuickStart document neglects to mention is 
that before performing step 4.2, you should have an *empty* CFC (I deleted 
the primary partition that I had previously written with the physdiskwrite 
program), and that before performing step 4.3 you need to write the image 
to the CFC.
