There is a "boot from SCSI" option in the BIOS, it just doesn't work
correctly. Adding IDE drives would be expensive (and I really don't
need any other drives), and additionally I would need an extra IDE
controller, so this is not an option.
So I guess I'll just have to work around it (which can be a pain),
apparently booting from a CD without BIOS-support is not possible.
