I've seen a few mentions of booting off a USB CD-ROM. What sort of drive are we talking about? I have a Buslink USB CD-RW (never my favorite device, but it's what I have), but although the Dot.Tiger's BIOS is set to boot from a USB CD first, the Buslink isn't accessed at all. Is there some particular drive that works well?
I've booted from a couple of different USB CDROM drives. Including a Panasonic DVD-RAM, a generic 24x10x24 CDRW and an Iomega 4x4x6 CDRW drive. Of course you have to make sure that the CD in the drive is bootable. I suppose it is possible that the spin-up time on your CDRW is not fast enough for the BIOS to recognize the boot sector. But other than that I can't think of any other reason why it wouldn't boot.
