AFAIK the Amiga cannot directly boot off the CD-Rom (it was just a matter of
time then, maybe OS 3.2 would have had that possibility...).
You'll have to make a minimal workbench disk and put the cd-rom fs and device
driver on it. Then you can launch the install process via cd.
If you need gfx-board boot/install, you'd better make a small Amiga partition
on the SCSI and install a workbench on it with cd-rom drivers and gfx-board
