Cant boot from ATAPI cdrom


I know this CD drive works (booyah Jimmy Hendrix Experince Greatest Hits) anyway, I just got this old crappy thing from a friend in a local buisness its a Pentium 100 with some ATAPI cdrom. I was going to install Mandrake 9.1 but sadly, no boot. Changed bios and get a boot from cdrom failure during POST. Is there something I have to change or am I screwed?

Thanks
Lotmr
