Thanks to the following people, in order of appearance:

Luc I. Suryo, Bevan Broun, Randy Romero, Josh N/A, Doug Otto,

Mr rich cole, Tony Walsh, krister bergman, and anyone I missed.

Do the following (if you don't want to remap your CDROM at OBP)

boot /iommu/sbus/espdma@f,400000/esp@f,800000/sd@2,0:d -s

The system nows boot from the cdrom, unfortunately, after booting and
working for many hours to get the server back.  I discovered too many
drives already crashed, have to rebuild the system.

(four controllers four array of drives, two arrays of drives on two
controllers totally wiped-out due to power failure, yes they're on UPS).

----- Update Message -----

Ok, it seems some of the drives on the controller is down (*maybe* the
controller is seperate from the mb) but that doesn't explains why I
can't boot off the cdrom to run fsck or troubleshoot more...probe-scsi
sees the cdrom just fine (below).
