You can probably take advantage of the "El Torito" standard that many
(if not most) IDE CD-ROM drives seem to support.
For more information, see this web site:
It looks like some CD burning packages under Linux make it relatively
simple to use an existing floppy image to create an El Torito bootable
CD -- just check the "make bootable CD" box (or something with a fairly
similar name <g>) and point the program at the appropriate image file.
The details will probably vary from program to program.
