Mi original message was:

> show me the cdrom perfectly..
> What i should do for to can boot it from the CDROM?

Well, in this message i forgot to include that ROM rev is 2.24 and i have
tried to boot with "boot cdrom" but unsuccessfully (the system do nothing
and the command never returns the EEPROM prompt again).

I have received several responses that i should to put the CDROM as target
6, then i do that and tried to boot and the system stand to the same old
Another responses suggest to boot with: "boot sd(0,6,2)" but it is used
only for old ROMs... well, i have not included this information on my
first message ...

Still waiting for a possible solution . . .

For now thanks to:
