You should also be able to attach an external SCSI CD drive using a device
like the Trantor T-348, which is a parallel port -to- SCSI adapter built
into a cable. I've used one many times to load OS onto some weird old
machine that lacked any other (easy) options.

There are both DOS and Linux drivers for the Trantor adapters.
