IBM laptop with docking station


I am considering getting this fellow - a nice little machine for when I am on the road. However, the only drive is a CD drive in the docking station. I want to install Slackware on it - will the BIOS recognize the drive in the docking station as a system drive?
I have no experience whatsoever with these machines.
