I've two ibm netfinity 3500 servers, I'would like to take pentium III processor from one server to use it on the other server with dual processor option, I removed the coprocessor from the server to install the second processor, but it doesn't work. Could you explain me the procedure to use dual processor on my server please?

In my experience working with many servers, Non-ECC memory will not work on a machine that requires ECC memory. It is possible in some servers to disable the ECC mode in the system BIOS to allow non-ECC memory to work, but you will often end up with performence problems later on.
Hope this information helps, let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

You definitely should be able to boot from cd. I used to have a netfinity 3000 and regularly booted off cd. However, there are 2 possibilities here:
a. your cd-rom is faulty
b. your cd disc is seen not bootable
I would suggest checking whether you can boot from this cd disc on another machine-if so, I would try swappin cdrom in the netfinity.
