I don't think PDC ever understood about parallel port CD-ROMs. So you
will have to boot your system some other way. The Boot howto doesn't
mention tape (I suppose I could try this out sometime since I have a
725 with a DAT drive ...), so I think a netboot is probably the best
way for you to go.
"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
