Trying to boot off the CD-ROM in a Sun Ultra 60 workstation

Hi there --

I acquired a Sun Ultra60 worsktation that already has the Solaris OS installed on it. What I would like to do is fdisk the existing configuration and install Gentoo, Debian, or Mandrake Linux onto the system. I am not sure how to boot from the CD-ROM in order to accomplish this task. Does someone know how it can be done? Thanks.
