Command: atapicdd.sys

  ATAPICDD.SYS is a generic CD-ROM driver for IDE CD-ROM (ATAPI). 
  It is still under development. Please use XCDROM.SYS instead.
  ATAPICDD.SYS has to be loaded in CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS.
  When FreeDOS is already running, you can load ATAPICDD.SYS later
  with DEVLOAD.

Comments:

  ATAPICDD.SYS is loaded in CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS.
  FreeDOS uses XCDROM.SYS or UDVD.SYS instead of 
  ATAPICDD.SYS now.
  The option /D: xxxxyyyy must be the same as in SHSUCDX
  (MSCDEX) which is loaded in AUTOEXEC.BAT.
