[Solved] CD-ROM drive not detected
Hi. I am new to Linux.
I tried to install Linux from a CD or DVD, but everytime the installation could not seem to find the media. I have tried Fedora, Ubuntu, Slax, and Knoppix.
I finally got Fedora core 5 to install by using the FTP option to get it from the internet, and it installed fine. Now I want to get the optical drives to work.
I have a Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6 motherboard with 2 optical drives, both IDE. One is a Gigabyte Combo drive and the other is a Samsung DVD Burner. Northbridge: Intel P965 Express Chipset; SouthBridge ICH8R Chipset.
I am guessing that because many distros did not install, the problem has something to do with the motherboard itself. I do not know if I have a setting incorrect in the bios or what. I noticed, though, that after I bought the motherboard, on the gigabyte site it said that there are chipset drivers to download for the different linux distros. If this is all I need, could I please have the links on where to download and how to install them?
