Hi guys,

I've just bought a AOPEN laptop
( and I'm trying to
install the suse 9.3 on it. The installation starts by detecting
hardware and activating the usb, firewire, etc.
Next, the installation stops and tells me that the installation CD was
not found (or could not be mounted).
Then I fall back on the linuxrc interface. The hardware panel gave
theses informations on the dvd drive: /dev/sr0 and the
ata_piix module loaded. I push on the eject cd button (in linuxrc) but
it doesn't work.
I decided to try the Ubuntu hoary live cd to see if it detects my dvd
drive and the "installation" also end up
with a "Installation cd cannot be mounted".

So it seems that my dvd drive not supported

I really don't know what to do. Do I have to upgrade the firmwire of the
laptop or load a module ?
If I perform a network installation, will the dvd drive be useable after ?

Try a network install, and then worry about the DVD.

Do you where I can get the mini-installation iso (to perform a network installation) ? It is not anymore on the servers nor the mirrors.
Also, a quite stupid (newbie) question. Isn't it strange that the cd boot, the installations starts and then the drive is not recognize ?
If the installation starts, doesn't it mean that the the installation can use the drive ?
