I need to thank Dapper Dan and dylunio for all the help. You guys have been loads of help. Dan, I looked at that post from linuxcompatible and it is kinda interesting that someone besides me is having this problem. I notced that he said something about PNP OS. Can anyone tell me what that is? Also what will acpi=off option do? Im still debating what to do. I guess i could try to find a USB CDROM drive to try. My drive is just a stand alone DVD drive not a combo drive. I guess i could also try to update my BIOS but id rather not if i dont have to.

This problem didn't seem to occur with Mandrake 9.2. It's not the latest, but it still works and shouldn't give that problem. Or, you could go with something like Fedora Core 2 or SuSE 9.1 or 9.2. Simply Mepis is a good Debian based choice as well.
