Can't get past "BIOS" Installed Successfully!"

After installation, system restarts with LINUX 5.1 disk in
CD-ROM, and SCSI components are identified as follows:
*SCSI ID:LUN NUMBER #:# 0:0 - QUANTUM VIKING 4.5 DRIVE C:
*SCSI ID:LUN NUMBER #:# 3:0 - PLEXTOR CD-ROM PX-12TS
A BOOTABLE CD-ROM IS DETECTED IN YOUR CD-ROM DRIVE...

0. DEFAULT ENTRY
YOUR CD-ROM DRIVE IS INSERTED AS DRIVE A: (0h). THE
ORIGINAL DRIVE A: HAS BECOME DRIVE B:
SCSI ID:LUN NUMBER #:# 4:0 - SyQuest SyJet-S - Drive D:(81h)
*=>"Plug and Play" peripheral--SCSI ID auto-assigned
BIOS INSTALLED SUCCESSFULLY!
