how to use cd rom under xen

Hi, I am a newbie for linux.

I want to install several virtual windows o/p under linux.

Originally, I need 3 computers to study/test a network software( server/client). I got a suggestion to install 3 windows virtual o/p under linux. I suppose to install vmware under redhat, but I found redhat itself has virtual machine manager. So I try to install windows 2003 under Xen. The virtual operation system win2003 so far running fine( I spent 3 days to get this level, it's hard but fun).

Now I want to install the application software in windows but I found I can't use the cd-rom ( as well as usb drive ) in windows (it has the cd-rom icon) ( I can use it in linux) .by the way, in windows devices mangager, beside the PCI Device, there is a yellow question's mark.

So what should I do, need a drive to fix the PCI problem under windows
or install a drive for linux Xen? HOW

Believe me I have checked the internet, but can't get answer.

probably I am in a wrong forum

I am neither a linux-alcoholic nor a coding guy. I am a stupid click and run windows' lover.I try to keep away from linux for 10 years and looks like I will. I just need linux as a platform to do my job. I don't want to spend too much time starting from linux tutorial which as a newbie suppose be. The bottom line, I don't want to get a big "0" for my course which I spend my own time and money on it. I will try vmware under windows. Say goodbye to linux and hug windows again.

let me answer it by myself

looks like a bug in Xen. should put the cd disk in the drive before boot up the windows. but also have problem to change the media, reboot will work, but remember seen similar post, use command in terminal to reject the media first, will google it again.
