SOURCE: NOT DETECTING CD ROM
Although the BIOS in this old machine has a boot from cd option, it is quite possible the DVDrom drive simply doesn't support the feature. Many P2 machines were like that. Chances are you will need a bootable DOS/WIN95/WIN98 floopy which will allow you to get it running with a CD driver.
Once you have this accomplished you can simply use the command prompt with cd support boot option and use the command prompt to load the installer on the CD. Once it finishes it's initial setup it will be able to use the cd drive for everything BUT booting.
Hope this Helps FixYa,

I'm guessing that the computer is not booting at all. This is saying that it cannot find any hard drive to talk to. Drives are labeled in the computer code with numbers starting at 0. There are up to 2 drives on an IDE ribbon cable, the Primary, and the "slave" or secondary. So, possibilities are that your hard drive died, the power connector to it came loose, or the power supply itself is having an issue with that connection that is attached to the hard drive.
