Mandrake Move 9.2, no devices found???


I just dled MandrakeMove 9.2 and burned it. When I booted, I chose enter for "press enter to launch Mandrake Move" . When it finished loading all 3 parts, it gave me a message saying "No devices found" and "that you may safely halt or reboot now" . This didn't destroy my cdroms I hope.... One of them is a Lite-On (according to my windows hardware list, not made by lg but still i've heard about liteons being a problem). And the thing is, it was reading from my hl cdrw drive first and it said something about my liteon then i switched to reboot and booted the cd from the liteon cdrom. Is this the same problem 9.2 caused other cdroms? i'm about to see if they are still operable... i really wanted to be able to use linux on this comp since it's faster and 10 chugs along on the 64 mb machine thanks for your help peeps
