    will SCSI-CDR work w/boot disk?

    I am building a new system. I have a SCSI-CDR, but no IDE-based CD-whatsoever. I plan to use the CDR to read CD in the new system My question is whether or not the scsi-cdr will work with a boot disk/generic CD-ROM driver in installing Windows? I would hate to buy an IDE-CD-ROM just for the purpose.

    Thanks.

    if you have a bootable scsi card, it should work just fine. make sure the "boot from cd" option in the scsi bios is set to "enabled."

    if your scsi card is not bootable, then i think you are out of luck.
