With your help from my earlier posting, I have set up an old laptop with a dual booot to Win3.1 and Windows XP Home.It works fine, but now I would like to know if I can access the CD rom from Win 3.1 and if so, some guidance would be appreciated.

Its possible to use a CD drive in 3.1, we have a computer at work with 3.1 with a CD drive, but I suspect if your CD is fairly new you might not get a driver for it. Have a look on the CD drive makers web site and see if they support 3.1 for the CD you want to use.
