External CD-ROM attached to parallel port & Linux

Hello !

I'm new to this newsgroup, so I don't know if these questions have already been
answered.

I have an external CD-ROM with parallel port interface. I would like to know:

1. If I can install Linux from this CD-ROM.
2. If there is a device driver for such kind of CD-ROMs.
3. Compatibility issues with other drivers that could use this parallel port.
        (i.e. a printer driver)

Thank you very much in advance.

Rafael Gonzalez.
