Booting from CD on a PE 2650 problem...

I just ran a few tests, tried to boot from a recovery CD created with tape
backup software. How do I boot from CD?
I tried entering the F2, F10, F12 function keys on startup;
to find and select a boot from CD option, could not find it.
When I placed the recovery CD in the CD ROM and did a
'shutdown -r now' command, the server just
rebooted from Hard Disk instead of CD.
I checked the boot sequence in BIOS, I believe it was set OK, the sequence
A drive, D Drive, then hard disk. On another note, how can I
double check the boot sequence when server is live, after booting up?
I'm using the A06 version of 2650 BIOS.
Thanks for any info.
