If version 1.2 isn't available from HP firmware ftp site (see the FAQ),
then I'd not updated the 715/100XC.  If it is available, then the buglist

THe CD-ROM might behave in some way that confuses the PDC.
It's only a bug if that CD-ROM was shipped with the machine.
ie, it's a tested and supported configuration.
That's why I keep harping about the SCSI device jumper settings.
