|Well you can remove the 5.25 and put the cdrom in the same drive bay. But you'll need an available IDE port to hook it up as a floppy cable won't connect to a cdrom.|
You can have up to 2 drives on an IDE cable so even if you only have one IDE port you can connect both the hard drive and cdrom to it--just make sure the jumpers are correct.
Or, if you have 2 IDE ports you can probably just connect the cdrom to the second one.
(I'm assuming the cdrom is IDE/atapi and not an older proprietary one, SCSI or SATA.
