Thank you for responding, It's been years since I worked with SCSI so after a bit of thinking and looking
I realized that the SCSI CDROM was on an adapter card instead of being plugged into the mainboard, which is why the BIOS wasn't seeing the drive.
For some reason Mandriva is insisting on installing from the SCSI CDROM instead of the IDE. I don't know/couldn't find parameters to give to the Kernal.
I bought SCSI pin adapters so I could plug the SCSI CDROM into the mainboard and now Mandriva sees the SCSI CDROM as a "Floppy?"
SO I boot up with the IDE then switch the disc to the SCSI and everything seems to be fine.
