Alas, the only Amigas that supported CD booting were the CDTV and the  
CD32. There are patch utilities that allow you to boot from a CD32 CD  
on a desktop if you have a hard drive, but that wouldn't help. As far  
as I know also no AmigaOS 3.5/3.9 CDs are bootable on those, but I  
could be wrong.

This is a good reason why I have about 10 copies of the 3.1 install  
disk (including 2 complete original copies of WB 3.1 disks).
