    yes, it should work fine. Just hold the "C" key when you turn the computer on so it can boot off of the CDROm

    It may, it may not. The Performas were sort of squirly when it came to the boot CDs and some would work, some would not. As an example, my 6400 Would boot off my 6205s disc, but not vice-versa, IIRC...
