The Potato (frozen) boot floppy should support this device.  Please
try that.  If that doesn't work, try the idepci "flavor" if disks --
see the top-level readme.

If that doesn't work, send detailed hardware and problems report to
the bug tracking system, that is, report a bug.

I don't know what that book is of which you speak.  There is an
install manual which comes with the install system itself, which is
what we maintain, which does describe CD installation.
