1. Use Sun Sparc CD-ROM drive on a Mac?

I have a Sparc CD-ROM drive, which was a free gift when I bought the
Sparc.  I have used it only a couple times for playing music since I
got it last year.   It is useless.

But I do need a CD-ROM drive for a Mac.  Is it possible to use the
sparc cd-rom drive on a Mac?  If yes, how?  Your help will be
