Of course, if you're lucky enough to have an Xserve setup with Netboot (using Netrestore Helper app to create this Netrestore boot image) then you can boot in a minute or so (instead of the 12-15min required by bootCD.

Or use a FireWire drive with a system on it to boot from.

Also, now a new option is Panther install CD1. In disk utility there is a new "restore from image" option. this cd boots in a minute too.

cool
