A couple of provisos-
a) The CD-ROM needs to be in the service boot list;
b) The CD-ROM drive itself must be the appropriate kind
(Plextor has been mentioned);
c) You need the key so that you can perform a service
You can get around c) by altering the "normal" mode bootlist
(which requires the root login within a bootable system).
