Ja. You would have to read /usr/doc/faq/howto/Bootdisk-HOWTO.gz
to get to know how to make a bootdisk. First, you should find a
system properly running Linux. And then you can make a bootdisk
on the system with your CD-ROM driver included in the root fs.
(About root fs, please read the HOWTO then.) And you can try to
boot with the disks you have made on the notebook and see if the
CD-ROM is initiated properly.
