loading drivers

IBM ps/1 computer model2155 43C with sony cd-rom model u33a-01. I formatted this PC, reloaded with doss 6.22 and win3.1 but it will not load the drivers no matter what I try. How can I accomplish the cd rom install?

you need to load the driver mscdex at the first boot disk
set the bios to boot from floppy with a boot disk in the a drive and restart
let the drive boot and the cdrom driver should install
also have you got the cdrom on the same ide port as the hdrive
if so set the cd as the slave
if on seperate ports make sure you have the secondary ide port enabled in the bios
