Boot Knoppix from Torsian CD?!?!?

I've replaced my DVD drive with a cheap Torsion CD rom drive in my HP ZT3010us laptop. The laptop has a completely empty formatted hdd and i wanted to boot Knoppix from CD and then do a HDD install using knoppix - installer.

The problem I have is the error message, can't find Knoppix kernel and reading the forums it looks like my CD drive is not compatible!!!

Is there a solution without buying another replacement cd drive?

This saga has been running for several weeks now as I try one way and then move onto an alternative solution.

Please, please, please help.
