ok mates!, what happens is that my old 8x cdrom is dead!... so i get this old cdrom but it is one of those cdroms that need to be attached to a sound card to work!... so my question is, how do you install the cdrom that way(i never need to do that in my life!)... ive installed the sound card(Soundblaster 16) but i dont know how to make the cdrom to be recognized!...
Thanks for your time!

Find out Brand info for the Sound card in question then download the suite of drivers for it if you can find them. There should be a DOS application to setup the onboard cdrom controller to make the needed changes to config.sys and autoexec.bat files.
