3 fiierent linux installers will boot, but cannot mount the cdrom
I have tried installing devil-linux, ark linux, and Debian on my machine (hp pavilion 6535 . . . don't laugh, it was free). With each distro, I have pretty much the same problem. It will boot the installer just fine, but when it proceeds to mount the CD-ROM, it can't do it. could this have something to do with the i810 chipset? or possibly the ancient samsung cd drive? I'm hoping that there is a way to resolve this without buying new hardware at the moment.
