problems with cdrom and mandrake
I have been trying to get mandrake 9.1 installed on my dual pentium pro system however i am having a strange problem with the cdrom.
When i boot to the cdrom using a newer 32x cdrom drive (that is a known good drive), it will boot to the 9.1 cd without a problem, but after the inital loading (the main screen), it then sit there trying to find the cdrom. it won't load any of the files and then gives up the ghoast.
Now when i used an old 8 speed drive, it starts to load and gets a little father but then just crazshes. I then tried it with a different old 8x drive and for some reason, i was able to get though the entire install process and 9.1 works great now.
but i am still confused and concerned as to why i can't use the newer drive as an install drive for my system?
any clues anyone?
