I was booting PLD from scsi cd-rom some time ago and found no problems. I think all better controllers (like adaptec with BIOS) are supporting booting from CD like it's made with IDE cd-rom's.

So this is the best solution. But even then you will have to load SCSI modules as Sebastian described it. After booting from scsi CD-rom, this drive not exists in system. It's working rather as /dev/fd0 device (/dev/fd0 is switched to /dev/fd1 I think)
