Well, putting the diskimage 'cdhdtape'  on CD as a normal file  
is enough for booting.
booting from SRM console works then as: 
show config  <- to identify your CD-ROM (if SCSI : dka{1,2,3,4,5,6}) 
boot -fi /path/to/the/file/on/cd/cdhdtape dkaX  

putting the tar-file sets on the same CD is a good idea imho ...
