Thanks Toni, very interesting thread .
This confirms what thomas wrote ("A CyberstormMK3/PPC or BlizzardPPC can boot from a SCSI CD due to their firmware. But you need to make your own bootable CD for this. There is no existing CD (game or other software) which uses this feature. Well, except OS4.").

Thanks. Yes, what I'm interested in is a vary basic setup: WinUAE A500+CD (or A1200+CD) configured so that I can load an Amiga CD game (not CD32/CDTV-only game) straight from the CD, without the need of copying all the data to HD first.
Apart from the "CDFS automount CD/DVD drives" option, is there something I have to add to my startup sequence, or some driver I have to add/load?
