Cool Slackware 11 with SCSI CDROM

Hi! I have a pentium 166 with Adaptec Scsi card. My first hard disk drive is on the id 1 and my scsi cdrom is on id 3. I have make a boot disk with the kernel adaptec.s for install Slackware 11 because my computer wan't boot from the cdrom.

When I boot with the floppy disk, he load the kernel adaptec.s and after booting I have the prompt boot:

I'm a new user of Linux.

How can I tell to load the cdrom to start the install of Slackware ? I's a new installation

Should I mount my cdrom ?

Thank you !

You need to use the boot-floppy and the install floppies which contain the setup program.
