2048K will do.
Remember RS6K are somehow picky while supporting CD ROM drives.
Plextor, Pioneer and IBM are known working, while Tshiba are not.

It will work after installation, but it's not sure if it is supported as
boot media.

Er, Model CR-504 and CR-506 are bootable on my 7006 systems.
 
 
 

1. 7011-220 and CDROM 2nd Try

Hello

I put the key in service mode, an install media of AIX (ver 4.1.5 or
4.3.3), turn on the best, there is access on the CDROM drive but I
always boot on diagnostic, no Install screen.

There is no gfx card on the machine, and I use an ascii Terminal on S0

is this mean my CDROM (a matsushita cr-504) is not working with this
model

Thank Again
