Packard Bell Pack-Mate 6593CD

OK guys, I am going way back here.

So I got this old Packard Bell Pack-Mate 6539CD from someone. I thought it would be cool to load Windows 3.1 on it. Yes, I said Windows 3.1. I know I have to install DOS first so I put together a DOS 6.22 floppy in and started from there. I receive the following prompt when I proceed with the DOS install:

Device driver not found :'BANANA'
No valid CDROM device drivers selected
A:\>


I know BANANA is a generic name but it seems I need the CDROM driver on the bootdisk. Does anyone know where I can find a driver that would work?

Additional info:

S/N: N453114329

Numbers on CD ROM drive:
MECD51626414
730025

Thanks for any info!
