Angry Mandrake isn't reading my CDs

I'm installing Apache and in the HowTo it's telling me to install a gdbm. Here's an except of the HowTo:

2.3. GNU Database System

2.3.1. What is gdbm

GNU dbm is a set of database routines that use extensible
hashing. It works similar to the standard UNIX dbm routines.

The GNU dbm is a very important application used by almost every
distribution. So it is installed by default on all distributions I tested.

In all probability the needed header files which are mandatory to build
Apache with mod_rewrite and PHP are not installed by default. Please consult
your distributions CD/DVD and install the devel package (The version can
|rpm -i gdbm-devel-1.8.0-546 |

This procedure is verified for SuSE and Redhat. Please confirm for other RPM
based systems like Mandrake. Debian will follow as soon as possible.

Users of Debian bases systems can install gdbm as follow:
|apt-get install libgdbmg1-dev |

2.3.2. Building and installing by yourself

In the unlikely case that your distribution does not contain gdbm here the
instructions how to build it.
|./configure |
| |
|make |
|make install |
| |
|ldconfig |
Now when I select to install it and it asks for me to insert the Install CD 1 or 2, it just ejects it and keeps bringing up the same warning. I have the ISO's burnt onto CD-RWs

Thumbs down

My mdk9.0 doesn't read CD tracks. It does list them but I hear nothing. The volumes
are correct (and the system sounds play too).
