mandrake 10.1 cdrom problem
I'm using a kind of old HP Pavilion 6630. This system is able to boot from cd, as I have already installed XP in this way. However when I try to install Mandrake 10.1 it gets past the initial stage and seems to detect my cdrom (Samsung) but then says that it is unable to read the cd...then gives me an option to retry..never works. Thinking that maybe I need a driver but can't find any..went to the Mandrake site..nothing. I md5'd the iso also.
mandrake 10.1 and samsung cd
same problem but not with hp...samsung cdr drive. my dvdrom drive (another brand) works fine. Everytime i try to install packages from cd though it asks for cdr drive and then can't read it correctly...says file signiaturs bad. yuch
