Instalation problems, SCSI Driver

I'm installing Mandrake 9.1 on my PC,
but I tried even Mandrake 8.0, and
Redhet 6.2 and I have always the same

When the kernel loads and the installation
should start I get an eroor: "No CDROM
Device found." and then I have to select
a SCSI driver.

But I'm not using SCSI. My disc is on

And there is nothing wrong with my PC
because I've already instaled Win XP and
it is stil runing normally.

What should i do?

Thank you for your help.

Some are seen as SCSI drives. If I understood previous reading there is no such thing as an IDE cdrom it is emulated as IDE.

I have 3 connectors on my motherboard
- the new small one Serial ATA
- and the old common connector (ATAPI) i call IDE
- RIDE which is the same shape as previous but is used
for multiple connections

And if I understand this right, SCSI is the emulation used to connect
more devices (as disks) on one motherboard.

So, I think that I need a driver for the CDROM.

It should work automatically but it is not.
