Unhappy Linux Mandrake CDROM problems


I realize that i am a newbie... eventhough I would like to give Linux Mandrake a shot..! i have a pioneer cdrom drive and a lite-on burner, i can boot on the Mandrake cd on both drives, but before the installations really starts, the Linux installation gives me the error: "No CD-ROM drives were detected" or something similar...
Anyone tried this before or anyone that can help me with this problem?

(disregard any typos)

Could you post the types of your cdrom drives (as much info as possible)?

My LITEONs worked for installation, but I cannot use them to burn CDs or read DVDs.

Pioneer cdroms are reported to cause problems. Try to make ain installation floppy and boot from it, using 'linux hdc=cdrom'. You shoulr replace 'hdc' with the right value, when hda is primary master, hdb is primary slave, hdc is secondary master.

Ok, the case has developped.... i installed Mandrake from my one of my harddrives, but i think I have located the problem now... I have 3 harddrives on an extra controller, and i have 1 burner, 1cdrom drive and 1 harddisk on my onboard controller. Linux can not detect any of the devices i have on my onboard controller, but it can detect the 3 harddrives i have on my extra controller....
I have an Asus motherboard P4B533
Anyone know if there has been reported any problems with this motherboard, or anyone have a solution howto mount the devices i have on my onboard controller?
