CROM and CDROM are not the same thing.

CROM is Control Read-Only Memory, which is a special kind of ROM storage in the control block of some microprocessors.

Your best bet is to find a site about microprocessors.  A good place to start would be:

http://dir.yahoo.com/Computers_and_Internet/Hardware/Components/Microprocessors/

I doubt that there is a site or book devoted to CROM that is not directed towards a technical professional.  Most likely information would be found in a general site about microprocessors.
