You can boot from your CD-ROM-drive, you only have to switch your boot-device in system-setup and must use a bootable CD.

I don't have a list, but I know what the problem is. Unix (or at least Solaris) uses a different block size with CD-ROM drives. I once run into that problem, when my system house sent me by mistake a drive, which worked fine, except for the boot process. I sent it back and they exchanged the firmware, after that it was O.K. (this drive was one of the first 4x drives from Toshiba).

So, when you look for a drive just make shure that it's adapted for Unix machines. If you already consider a certain type, go to the web pages of the manufacturor or give a phone call to him or to the vendor. They should be able to tell you. If not, don't just buy it.
