    Hi,

    I have a 2nd hand IBM 560E Thinkpad running Windows 95 that only has an
    external floppy drive. I need to do a fresh reinstallation of Windows 95 and
    Office 97. Can I get an external CD-Rom for this computer as I only have
    this software on CD. Am I correct in thinking I need a "serial CD-ROM"? I
    did a Google search for "serial CD-Rom" and came up with little intelligible
    information.

    Thanks for your help.
