    First of all, you must make sure the system (BIOS) supports booting
    from a CDROM or DVD drive. That is usually a BIOS setting where
    you cab change the boot-order. make sure the CDROM comes
    BEFORE the internal hard-disk there ...

    That MAY be a problem on some (quite new) systems, since
    I think that uses the 'emulation' type of CDROM booting.

    There are two types being used, emulation and no-emulation.
    The classic OS2 installations disks all used 'emulation' since
    that used to be the best supported, but times have changed
    since Microsoft only uses 'no-emulation' for its productt.

    The older method is not tested by many BIOS/board
    manufacturers anymore and may fail ...

    The lateer eComStation CD's use no-emulation, so you
    could test that. (inckludes the free eCS DEMO CDROM)
