Well this isn't the right place to ask, this being the linux setup place, but I can help.
MSDOS dosen't detected your cdrom driver, because it's not trying. It doesn't come with drivers. You will have to download the drivers from the web site of the company that made the thing, or install windows 98, which has a dos boot disk with cdrom drivers.

how did you install win98 if it didn't detect your cd? Make a windows 98 boot disk, and when it boots choose cdrom support.
