This is definitely specific to the machine; it has a DVDrom and a CDRW.
It wouldn't boot from the DVDrom any of the following:
Knoppix 4.0.2 or 5.1
Ubuntu 5.10
Beatrix IX_2005
and others

So I disabled 'autodetect' in the BIOS for the DVDrom and booted off the
CDRW.  The box is now a functioning file and IMAP server and I'd rather
avoid rebooting it to give you the exact BIOS details but if you still
need them, let me know.  The DVDrom seems to be detected at boot with
the installed OS; I re-enabled autodetect afterwards; I'm not sure it
made any difference.

It shouldn't except that when I was completing the installation report I
needed it to give the output of lspci :)
