it allows me to choose the language, keyboard type and just at the dialog were it asked installation method I chose 'local cdrom' from optons:local cdrom, hard drive, nfs image ftp, HTTP. Then it pops a dialog "No driver found"-unable to find any device of the type needed for this installation type, would u like to select a drivermanually or use a driver disk?

i was given options ranging from--select driver, use a driver disk, back.

I've tried all the available drivers but none seem to be working.
