Question about PC Laptops
The floppy version of Oak CD Rom Driver it is trying to install, will only work on certain types of CD drives (usually IDE or IDE-compliant SCSI internals). It is rare that it will work on an "external" CD Rom. Very unlikely.
However, if this is a good brand-name external CD drive like a "Backpack", you can make a floppy boot disk with their own proprietary driver (look on their website or old version sites). Usually the external CD drive manufacturer will provide either a driver to add to a MS boot floppy, or they will provide a specialized floppy image that you can use instead of the MS boot floppy.
