My MB has a bootable IDE CDROM option. It's an AMI bios with the built in
Trition 430HX's IDE controller.

I have never had a bootable cdrom before, but the option is in the boot
order section, A:, C:, CDROM.

I know new Adaptec SCSI cards have an option in their bios's to allow SCSI
CDROM boot's, I forget if my other machine with the AHA supports it

I also saw a Compaq with a built in SCSI controller boot from a CD-ROM
some time ago. 

I think it's really great to have bootable CD's fro debian, makes it alot
easier to install, or even just to try linux.
