After installation when login there is no CD/DVD. And I can not mount

I have no CD/DVD/hcd in dmesg. So it seems like the CD/DVD is not

I have a LG DVD-RW with dubbel capacity.

Comment 3 Fredrik Jonsson 2005-02-26 03:46:21 EST
Solved! Yesterday I mixed around my HW (DVD and HDD) and managed BIOS
to find the DVD as second slave. Then it works!

Aparently the DVD can not be on hdc if a HDD is on hdd.
The HDD on hdd is on size 200Gb, maybe that is part of the problem.
