Angry Help with Mandrake 8.1 Install


I am trying to install Mandrake 8.1 on my system. It proceeds for a while through the first screen until it tries to locate and read the Installation CD for the actual install. It indicates that it is looking for the CD and that the drive is an HP 9500 Plus Read/Write. My CDR is a 9510 and I believe it cannot find a driver. The system boots OK from the MANDRAKE CD but then it runs into trouble.

I am a total NEWBIE to LINUX. HELP

I have been unable to resolve this problem. Please HELP

I am relative newbie also; however, if at all possible I would try a regular CD drive to get going.
