If you don't have any software, why do you need to install cdrom.  You need atleast MSDOS or Windows 95 or some OS.  Get MSDOS or Windows 95 bootable disk with format.com, and mscdex.exe on it.  Boot from the floppy disk and format your C: drive.  (You will all if there is any data on the harddisk)

format c: /s

After formatting boot from the c: drive. From the cdrom installation disk of creative install the cdrom software.

If you don't know how to do it, a simpler driver that work with most of the cdrom models is samsung's sscdrom.sys.  Get this from the internet.  copy it into the c:\drive.Also copy mscdex.exe into c:\

make a config.sys file by adding the line
device = c:\sscdrom.sys /d:mycd
and an autoexec.bat file with the following line
mscdex.exe /d:mycd





copy the mscdex.exe into the c:\
