CD-Rom not found

I'm new to linux, just wanted to try something other than windows. I dled mandrake 10.1 i586 iso's and was able to burn the image files fine. When i rebooted with the cd's they worked, however mandrake says that it can't find a cd rom on my computer, but it's running from it. If some1 can help me with this i would really appreciate it.

I'm not sure of your current status? Do you have a working Mandriva install, and you simply cannot find the CDROM drive? Or when you try to install you have this error?
