I set up new PC's with IDE cdrom's everyday, and of late there's been a
newer feature that I stumbled accross in the BIOS - instead of the boot
sequence being A or C or SCSI, there's often "CDROM" in there as well -
does anyone know how this works?  It would be really handy for Debian (and
my own interests:) to do this.
