i have a pe2400, perc raid, adaptec 7880 and 7890 (standard stuff).  no
matter what settings i try, i can't get it to boot from the cdrom.  it
never even hits it trying to boot.

tried it as only boot device in bios; as 1st of 3, 2nd of 3, 3rd of 3. 
adaptec bios identified the drive and speed on bootup.  tried different
cdrom drive, different cable.

adaptec bios is set bootable, along with that scsi id.

my only next option is to re-flash bios.

any other thoughts... anyone?

thanks, Gerard.
