System info:
Tyan Tiger 200 motherboard
Bios 2505 1.02b
1.0 Ghz Pentium III (dual)
1 Gb memory
I-Omega Zip 250 on Primary Slave
HP CD-rom model 9100 Plus on Primary Master
Adaptec SCSI Card model 39160
IBM Hard drive model DDYS-T18350
Matrox 450 dual head AGP Video card

I am currently trying to boot from a floppy diskette and load cd rom drivers for the HP cdrom, and am unable to get this to work.(The CDROM cannot be found) I have tried to use Caldera DOS that comes with Power Quest Drive Image, Win 98 DOS and Win 95 DOS But have had no success. I need this boot process in order to restore systems.

Other things I have tried:

Another HP 9100 CD ROM: Did not help.
Hp 9500 CD ROM: DID not help
Disconnecting Zip Disk: DID not help

Teac CD-W58E CD ROM: Worked Fine
Teac CD-540E CD ROM: Worked Fine
HP 9100 CD ROM on a Tyan Thunderbolt: Worked Fine

I have been able to load Win 2000 from the CD as well as the Floppy Based install. (The CDROM had to be the Master and the ZIP the Slave in order to get this to work, this may be normal for Win 2000)

I am also able to boot DOS from the CDROM, but am not able to load drivers for the CD rom after booting.(this works fine with other CDROM's and Motherboards)
