The Installation program doesn't recognize my cdrom! (even after I boot
from cdrom)

(Please excuse me if my information is irrelevant.  I am a longtime Unix
user, but know nothing about PC hardware.)

I have a AM486dx100 with IDE bus.

At Windows95 boot time, the messages displayed about the cdrom are:

----------------------------------------------------------------------

        unit 0 id 1 MATSUSHITA CD-ROM CR-563-x 1.02
1 CD-ROM drives(s) connected
CD-ROM device driver installed.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The CD-ROM is connected to a soundblaster card.
The CD-ROM gets installed as drive E:

I can go into MSDOS from Windows95, and run view.exe on drive E:, which
lets me choose the install.bat.  However when it comes time to choose the
installation media, a message pops up saying that no cdroms are installed.
The same with booting off the floppy.

Can I do something with booting using -c option so that my cdrom gets
recognized?

Thanks.
