The only requirement for booting from an external SCSI CD-ROM (that I'm
aware of, of course) is that the drive must support 512-byte sectors.  If
you don't plan to boot from it, any SCSI CD-ROM will do the trick.  Every
Plextor drive I've seen, by the way, supports 512-byte sectors - I suspect
most decent SCSI CD-ROMs do.
