You should use a "universal cd-rom driver", there are available at many places on the internet.  I would suggest:
http://www.can.ibm.com/helpware/ambfiles.html
and choose the d011v200.exe package (self extraction file)  you can extract the file in a temporary directory called and you will get the driver d011v200.sys.  I would suggest that you create a directory names c:\dev on the computer that you want to run in DOS mode (it can be a: if you want to boot from a diskette).  Then you need to get a file called mscdex.exe, it is part of windows95 in \windows\command, you also have it in recent releases of MS-DOS and PC-DOS (you will have to find it because it is a Microsoft copyright software and it is unlikly in the internet).  Put the mscdex.exe file in the \dev\ directory.

Editing config.sys
Add the following line in the config.sys:  
device=c:\dev\d011v200.sys /d:mscd001

Editing the autoexec.bat
Add the following line in the autoexec.bat
c:\dev\mscdex.exe /d:mscd001

Warning, to not modify the line if you are running win95 or win98 and the cd already works in windows.  If it is the case, do the following:
Add the following line in the config.sys:  
device=c:\dev\d011v200.sys /d:mscd001
 Go to the windows directory and create the following file:
dosstart.bat
and add the line:
c:\dev\mscdex.exe /d:mscd001
you can do it like this:
cd c:\windows
copy con dosstart.bat
c:\dev\mscdex.exe /d:mscd001 (F6)
there (F6) means that you press the f6 key at the end of the line.
With that you will be able to use the function "restart in MS-DOS mode" and still have cd-rom support

BTW, 2 points for a question is not appropriate, please ajust the points for the futur questions

well, if you now that your cdrom is ATAPI then you can use any kind of ATAPI cdrom driver. Just add the following command to your config.sys

device=c:\cdrom_driver.sys /d:mscd001

The driver must be placed the root directory.

and finally edit your autoexec.bat

mscdex /d:mscd001
