I own a MicroSolution BackPack PD/CD Drive

My notebook is an old 486 system with no CDROM Drive, neither it has any
SCSI or PCMCIA slots.

I need to install Linux onto its limited 200MB harddisk.

My question is:

How can I get the BACKPACK CDROM to be recognised?
Do i need to install a minimal system onto the notebook using diskettes.
And compiled a newer kernel that support PARA-IDE modules.

Or there is a new Linux release which had the modules in installation disks
which will save me lots of troubles.
