    I have never tried it with a CD-RW. If the CDs are not in a drive that cannot be read 9of they are CD-RW, they have to be in a CD-RW drive). If thats all OK, did you make sure your BIOS make your DC-ROM the first to boot?
    If you love something, emerge it

    could you clarify a bit?
    the install boots of the cd....so you are past booting?
    or?
    and what happens next?

    i think he means it loads the installer but wont find the cd's when it tries to put stuff onto hard drive, right?

    have u tried using
    "dma=off, pci=off" as extra parameters when it asks u to type isntall or something.

    it could be the download was cruptted, it happened to me with fedora, i had to download cd 1 3 times before i got it right and also your media (cd) could be to blame if it's the cheap stuff
