    you generally don't need to. if the bios supports booting from cd then the eide interface will handle everything for you.

    The OAKCDROM.SYS driver on the 98 boot disk is a generic one and MSCDEX.EXE is also for all CDs

    If your PC can't boot from the cd-rom, putting the boot files on the CD won't help? If you want the cd to run automatically have a look at this site. or do a google search for autorun.ini.
