RE: Ultra 60 'boot cdrom' Woes...

Thank you.  I perform a "probe-scsi" and receive the following:

{0} ok probe-scsi
Target 0
  Unit 0    Disk     FUJITSU MAJ3182M SUN18G 0804
Target 6
  Unit 0    Removable Read Only device     TOSHIBA XM6201TASUN32XCD1103
{0} ok

It appears (from what I can understand) that Target 6 is my CD-ROM.  Does
that equate to scsi ID 6?  If so, does this indicate a CD-ROM drive problem?

This has nothing to do with Linux, or the CD you have in there. OBP
cannot communicate to the CD driver itself.

Do a "probe-scsi" and see which scsi ID your cdrom is, if it even shows
up. The "cdrom" devalias points to ID 6 by default, so if your cdrom
isn't scsi ID 6, that will explain it.
