sata chipsets and bootable CDRoms

This may have been covered previously;, my apologies if it has, just direct me to the answer. The question is: I want to make a bootable CD that will start a program that is larger than 2.88 meg. Previously I would make a bootable CDRom and then using autoexec.bat refer it to a directory containing the program that needed to be started. Of course my bootable CDRom contained an autoexec.bat and config.sys that would allow oakcdrom.sys and mscdex.exe to be loaded and the CDRom drive assigned a drive letter in DOS.
This worked fine and then sata CDRoms arrived and the newer chipsets so that the CDRom drive can not be assigned a drive letter even with gcdrom.sys. How to I get around this and what do I need to do to get around this problem and how do I use it?

Same topic but seems it gives an answered you already tried gcdrom.sys. Maybe there is something you missed...check out the topic above and then goto the site. It should work....but I have never needed to use it so idk.
