When you boot to the floppy you should be offered 3 options. I think cd-rom support is the first, so type 1 and press "Enter" on the first options screen after booting.

When you turn the machine on with the Startup Disk in the floppy drive, it should load to a page with options listed like:
  • Start with cd-rom support
  • Start without cd-rom support
  • Start normally
Or something very similar. Type the number that corresponds to "Start with cd-rom support" and press "Enter.
