Need the boot cdrom command

Does anyone know the command to boot the cdrom after starting the process with rh7.3 boot floppy ? This is an older (1996) laptop, so it won't boot automatically. I tried "enter" after the floppy gave me "boot:", but no joy. Please give me a command to provoke the cdrom to read. Sure would appreciate it! -Jeffy.
