Hey all,

I have a 530H that I finally got running the other day, thanks to  
Patrick telling me how to place the memory boards. Now, the CD-ROM is  
plugged in, has power, and (I assume) is on the bus, but the machine  
won't boot from it. I believe it's set to id 2. It seems like it's a  
dead one, because I never see any activity, but I have a hard time  
believing it's dead. Are there any other reasons why the machine when  
in service mode might not hit the CD?
