    Help wanted! GAG working OK but - no CD ROM recognised (after booting Win 98SE) exactly as explained in FAQ 18. But where to find the file required to install in CONFIG.SYS (CDATAPI.SYS or sismilar)?  I don't have a CD ROM driver floppy. Isn't the driver already somewhere in Windows? - how else does Windows recognise a CD ROM? Mine is a LITE-ON LTR-16102B, by the way.
    The other file required is MSCDEX.EXE and that's in Windows and also on the boot disk for initial install. What is everyone else doing? Really appreciate a pointer or two on this one and thanks in advance. Alan
