I just checked my Ultra 5:
It has a DVD Rom from anywhere (has been put in by some previous owner).
devalias cdrom ->
boot cdrom ->
Debian Lenny CD 1=> ok
Debian Squeeze CD 1 16-Apr-2010 => ok
both on CD-R media.
After booting Debian from hard disk - from /proc:
DVD Drive is attached to chanel 1
On some Ultra (10?) with IDE interface, I had to say
boot cdrom did not work.
Maybe that helps.
