You will change BIOS,
1. SATA mode [IDE] -> [RAID]
2. boot first [CD-ROM]
3. Halt on [All, without Keyboard]
I have a dell inspiron 530 and I am facing same issue with centos 4.2, 4.5 and RHEL 4.7. I have tried the same options you have specified. Interestingly when I change the SATA mode to RAID, it would automatically change my boot first from CDROM to P1-HL-DT-ST DVD+/-.
In CMOS my disk drive shows SATA-0 SAMSUNG HG321JK.
Any help is appreciated.
