THANKS FOR THE HELP DARRELL, THOUGH THE OEMCD WAS NOT RECOGNIZED AS A DRIVER. WHAT REALLY STUMPS ME IS THAT WHILE 'STARTING WINDOWS 95' IT LIST THE ATAPI CDROM DEVICE DRIVER, MTMCDAE.SYS (I GOT FROM MITSUMI:FXII6) THEN, IT GIVES ME THE MESSAGE 'NO VALID DRIVERS' BAD COMMAND OF FILE NAME :MSCD001. I GOT THE SAME RESULTS USING 'OEMCD'. INTEL CHIPSET, CONNER SCSI HD, MITSUMI CDROM. I'M TRYING TO HELP A FRIEND OUT, BUT THEY HAVE NO OEM FLOPPIES, JUST THE 18 CAB VERSION WIN95, SO I'M UNABLE TO PLACE CABS ON FLOPPY -CAN'T GET CDROM INSTALLED-DYNAMITE SEEMS LIKE THE NEXT LOGICAL APPROACH...DAMN! GOT A MATCH!

if youre really that lost over this, and it is a mitsumi drive, you can download the mitsumi diag util from http://www.mitsumi.com onto a bootable floppy and it will give you cdrom support in dos. oh and dude, you dont have to YELL AND TYPE LIKE THIS - WE CAN HEAR YOU>>> just a thought and hope this helps...

also you can use a bootable floppy with a cd driver installed on it to access the cdrom such as a win98 startup disk for a different machine
