    Have you already installed the CD drive? Not sure if windows 3.1 even supports CD drive.

    How easy it is to forget all this :) For Win 3.1 don't you need to load DOS drivers?

    When you say "it's loaded" do you just mean it's physically installed or that you've also added the drivers for the CDROM? Is you question that you want to get into BIOS(setup)? Sorry, but we're not sure what you want to do.
