I don't know ... Chris do you know more ?

Have you tried to boot with Smart Boot Manager (SBM) ? There's a sbm.bin
image that you can write on a floppy, then you boot on that floppy which
does the required bootstrapping to boot on the CD. I don't know if it
works with SCSI cds ... but I know that it helps to boot on some IDE CD
where old bioses doesn't support isolinux booting.
