OpenBoot needs to function *enough* to get the OpenBoot update started. Typically it is run from the system disk, but I suspect (but do not know) if you could run it off the CD-ROM drive (since all the OpenBoot does is reach out to a bootable device and grab the referenced file and execute it).

Good luck - are Ultra 5 systems hard to find in the UK? They are pretty plentiful back here in the colonies - maybe a forklift upgrade is in order...
