Question Ich9r Mandriva 2008 Installation Problem


Hi I Am A Total Newbie Here And Was Trying To Install Mandriva 2007 On My Pc, I Got A No Dvd Error When Installing, I Read On A Forum That It Was A Problem W/ The Driver Support On The Mandriva Version I Was Using, I Got The Mandriva 2008. And When Trying To Install, While The Installer Is Looking For The Drivers I Got An Error, I Think It Is Related To My Sata Controller, I Got A Dell Vostro 400 W/ A Intel Q 6600 Proc, I Also Noticed That It Says Unable To Mount Fdo, Any Help Or Guidance Will Be Truly Appreciated, Thanks In Advance.

thanks, alan_ri, I checked that site but I'm unable to get any info from it, I found out that my dvd is a LiteOn PLDS ts-h653b ATA device, this is showing on my device manager from windows. And this is the DVD drive I'm tryng to install from.

If I'm not wrong,you can only get Mandriva One or Free as a cd image,not as a dvd image.
