>The older 32H seems to be picky about what CDROM it will boot from.
It is indeed. I have faint memories of problems booting 320's from
new CDROM drives that came with 'advanced machines' like model 350's.
These newer CDROM drives were 7210 002 (if I recall model correctly)
whereas the original 1X CDROM units were 7210 001.
We found if the 7210 002 was attached to a 7024 external IBM drive and
that 7204 was connected to the 320, we had no trouble booting. I
found some documentation at the time that said that these newer drives
weren't supported on the 320 machines.
I have no idea why it worked chaining the CDROM after the external
disk, but if I recall correctly, it did work for us about 5 years ago.
