Re: No CD/DVD drive.... wt?
I have been playing around with the great Mandrake 2005 limited edition, but i decided id put on mandrake 10.1 instead. anyways i downloaded the ISO image and burned the DVD, when i went to boot from it it comes up with the usual screen, so i press enter, then it SHOULD go into the choose language etc, but instead it decides it cant find a CD/DVD drive!! and then offers to boot from floppy!! I mean... its having a Giraffe aint it?
It is because your laptop uses SATA drives. You must boot alt1 (If I remember right) kernel for the install to work.
Play around using alternate kernels on your install.
