Well, need more info. What kind of disc is it on? CD? If so, then you can hook up an external CD drive to the MacBook and it'll read the disc.

Also, what's the document format? A .pdf? Office Word? Whatever the format, you can easily download a free reader app, but it'll help to know.

gee Stony - come back to the analog world - you need to keep a 95 / 98 2nd V running to run that disc.

my home 98 2ndV keeps singing along here

Actually, the solution I'd do would be to just install and run Windows95/98/Vista on the Mac and then copy the repair manual discs to my Mac's internal drive.

That's a bit "under the hood" sort of computer thing, but worthwhile.

It's always handy to have Windows for weird old stuff like this.

Or, you can open Windows files right in the Mac OSX using an app that lets you do that. Something like the program "wine" or something...

Not sure if your near (or willing) to endure the "Genius Bar" nonsense at a local Apple Store, but seeing someone go through the process of getting Windows stuff running on a Mac is a lot easier than talking through it.

There is a massive download somewhere of the Blue Books scanned as PDFs

All up is about 405MB and created in 1998.

I downloaded it, so it is out there somewhere. I'm sure someone will point you in the right direct of the link.

Easier than loading a Windows app on a Mac.
