Can you still boot from CD?

I had a similar problem with an iBook G3 (2xUSB) some years ago. It got
solved by Apple replacing some hardware. Everything was working fine
with Mac OS X but after the linux install it did not want to reboot
anymore at all but just brought that quiesce message - however without
the returning line - iirc.
