    Hi All -

    I would like to boot from a USB CD-ROM on my Tyan GS12 (with Phoenix
    BIOS 1.05) so I can install FreeBSD 5.3.

    The BIOS Setup chapter in the GS12 manual (p. 55) says the Boot Menu
    allows me to set the priority of the following four booting devices:

    - Removable Devices
    - Hard Drive
    - CD-ROM
    - IBA GS Slot 0208 v1216 (LAN Intel 82547GI)

    Can I select "Removable Devices" to boot from a USB CD-ROM?

    Thanks for any help.

    - Scott

    PS - Currently I'm not even able to get into the BIOS setup on this
    machine. I've posted separately on that issue here:
