I put another 32x cd-rom in as the previous 1 failed to power up. I have w98 installed.
the new cd-rom powers up but a I do not have D rive showing in my computer & also I get the message "the drive or network connection that the short cut to ncd-rom disc.lnk refers to is unavailabe."
Hellp not a clue tried to re load drivers but no good.

Added a new Hard Drive - moved the CD-rom to a new drive (e.g was e drive now f drive) When I want to start a dos game the computer does not see the re-positioned drive. What can be done so that I can use the CD-Rom in Dos. I have a IBM 300GL.

are you trying to use your game in msdos mode or a dos session in windows?
in msdos mode you need to load the drivers via autoexec.bat and config.sys
look for mention of mscdex in autoexec.bat
look for the /L switch
see if it says /L:E
if it does try changing it to /L:F
or maybe a line similar to
change /E to /F
check out config.sys too for similar
change /E to /F
maybe this will help
but i don't think you want to load things this way in windows
windows wants protected mode drivers
and so you really don't need entries in your autoexec.bat or config.sys for cd drive support in windows but
you can make a startup floppy with these files configured specially for cd support in dos and boot from this floppy
tried to answer sooner
but all kinds of interuptions
