Just wanted to let you guys know. Read this at mandrakelinux.com
October 24th, 2003 - Important notice! - Several users have reported a big issue with LG Cd-rom drives used with Mandrake Linux 9.2.

Please avoid to use Mandrake Linux 9.2 with these LG CD-ROM drives or you could damage your Cd-rom drive. All details, future updates and possible fix related to this issue are available here. Other Cd-rom drives are not affected by this issue.

Wow - doesn't affect me, but wow!

I'm interested in how a cd-rom drive can be damaged by installing a distro from it.
