Installing CD Ver of Linux with a PAS16+ SCSI CDROM

I'm having some problems installing Linux on my system.

I have an old Phillips LMS-205(f) SCSI CD-ROM connected
to my Pro-Audio Spectrum Sound Card.  The Settings for the
card under DOS are iobase 340, irq 5.

This CD-ROM runs fine under OS/2 as a Phillips LMS-206
CD-ROM, yet I am unable to set it up under the Linux Install.

I need the CD-ROM to install, as I only have a 14.4k Modem,
and as such it would take way too long to install the system
from the 'net, and also I have the Linux CD's.

When you first start the boot disk, and the prompt:

LILO:

comes up, enter:

linux cm206=0x340,5

This should initialize the card, if the kernel on the disk has the support for it.
