mandrake 10.. cdrom problems..

ok so i installed mandrake 10 rc1.. it detected my radeon 9800 but won't go into KDE and says "no screen".. so i'm thinking i should install the ati drivers. so i pop in a cd with the drivers, but it won't read the cd at all..

i try my floppy at /mnt/floppy and the light come son in my floppy drive, but when i try the cdrom, it won't even try reading and the cdrom folder shows nothing inside. what's wrong here?

sounds like the cdrom isn't mounted..
if you have 2 hard drives it might be like mine.. I have hda/hdc/and hdd is the cdrom so to mount it I use
mount /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom
I'd try that out...

How about you get the official version. I'm sure the rc versions have quite a few bugs, since they're testing versions.

you can mount the cd with the mount command. first, find what device your cdrom is: it could be /dev/scd0 (scsi-device) or /dev/cdrom or something else...check it out in the control centers. Then either set the device and the filesystem type to mount on the graphical disk icons on the desktops or mount the cd manually using the console:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/****device /mnt/cdrom
it should then mount. See 'man mount' for more info on the mount command
