    Installation faillure help plz


    Have original 5 CD's
    This is what happens step by step

    CD runs after computer boots up into linux graphic and gives me the options...so I choose Installation,,
    It goes into loading linux kernel installation prog v1.9.10
    then a load of txt scrolls up the screen as it goes about finding stuff on the computer, like load usb drive etc
    then comes up with "Make sure that CD number1 is in drive" I press OK
    then comes up with "Could not find SuSe Linux Installation CD" Activating manual Setup
    Then comes up with Select the language
    English UK
    then a menu appears
    Settings
    System Information
    Kernel Modules
    Start Installation or System
    Verify Installation CD-ROM ( which comes back "Trying to mount CD-ROM or No CD-ROM found")
    Eject CD
    Exit
    Power Off

    When I try "Start Installation or System" just keeps coming back "Cannot mount CD-ROM"

    type of external CDROM drive interface pc card Sony PCGA-CD51

    Cheers

    Do you have a internal drive and which version of SuSE are you trying to install.
