Re: really weired problem...installation media not found



well i posted this problem on some other forums also and i came to
conclusion that installation program is not recognising cdrom....than i
tried to install mandrake 10 on these system and same error...cds will
boot but after that no cd detected... so i m thinking it is a kernel 2.6
problem because before fc2 redhat 7.3 was installed on them
successfully... is this is a bug..what should i do about it... anyway i
did a nfs install and system installed fine....
