    Not detecting CD ROm drive


    Hello All,

    I am pretty new to Linux,
    When trying to install TurboLinux 6.0 through a boot floppy,
    After a while it says to insert the CD and later it is not recognizing the CDROM,
    SO do we need to mount the CD-ROM before installation ??

    Thanks in Advance

    I assume the Turbolinux CD is bootable...Have you tried using SmartBootManager? It will allow you to boot from other devices even if your BIOS does not support it.
