Mandrake Linux 10.1 Installation
 
hello,
I just bought MANDRAKELINUX 10.1: The Ultimate Linux Desktop
Its a dvd (PC DVD-ROM)
I inserted it to install and after I pressed enter to install I got
Error: No CDRom device found
Please insert the additional driver floppy
There is no detected floppy drive
Which driver should I try to gain SCSI access?
floppy.ko
isofs.ko
cdrom.ko
ide-cd.ko
scsi-mod.ko
(and a LOT MORE)
(If I choose one I get)
Please enter the parameters to give to the kernel:
Options:________________________


so what driver should I choose and what should I write in the parameter???
(I have a cdrom, dvdrom)
(I already have winxp which I want to keep)

thx

Hi,
Hmm... Could you give more precisions:
-If I get it correctly, the dvd loads, you press ENTER, the installation starts, and then; - finally -, you get the 'Error: No CDRom device found' message.
-I think I had the same problem: does the error appear in a blue dialog box?
-Does it give you a skip option
-How old is your computer(+ its specs)?

Then we can proceed...
Best regards,
