    Boot loader: take a look at lilo or grub. You may also use GAG.

    CD-ROM: do you see your cd-rom in the output of "dmesg"?

    Grub and Lilo are boot loaders. I've found a quick how-to for you to begin with Grub:

    Some people will use GAG (another boot loader) because you don't need to install anything on your MBR, you can install in on a floppy disk.

    About your CD-ROM drive, type in the command line : "dmesg | less". This will output a lot of information about your hardware configuration. the "| less" part is to allow you to scroll with the arrow keys. Read that (that might also look like chineese) and try to find your CD-ROM in there.
