We had a couple of servers that would not mount the NetWare 6 ISO cd (sp2 or sp3 tested). After a compare we noticed that those servers had their CD jumpers set to "cable select". (These were IDE CD's. Not tested with SCSI'S.)

When booted with the NetWare 6 ISO CD, they just would not mount as NetWare volumes to continue the installation.

SOLUTION: Change the CD jumper to master (and make sure it is the master).
