Unhappy Install from parallel port CD problems...

OK, here's the situation:

486-100 laptop
No internal CD, but I have a ParaDisk PP IDE drive from which I would like to install Slack 8 - at least some of it

I tried the pportide.i bootdisk, and I don't think it found the CD (I might have missed it).

1. How can I test if the bootdisk actually did find the CD?
2. Does anyone have any experience with parallel port IDE drives?
3. Where can I find more info re: PP-IDE and Linux?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

TIA, Bob
