Guys, my humble apologies!
I've just downloaded a new image and it worked straight away. Either the image was dodgy or my burn was . Looking good, now.

It could easily be an old enough drive that it wants good CD-R media (I have a spindle of Taiyo Yuden for that very purpose). Since the Ultra 5 uses IDE, you could put in another drive and see if that solves your problem.
You can also do a device scan at the boot prom ("help" will help you find the command) and scan to see what device address the CD-ROM has, but since it's IDE, I expect that the PROM would expect the CD to be the slave drive on the primary channel (assuming the Ultra 5 has only one channel, which I think is the case).
