I have SuSE 6.3 linux installed on a Thinkpad 760ED, along with Windows 98
and an Oberon OS, all booting from Linux lilo program. I also had RedHat
5.1 installed on the same machine earlier.

My machine has same CD-Rom, and both the SuSE and the Redhat installers
recognized it. Choose "ATAPI" if given a choice of CD-Rom drivers required.
I suspect everything is ok regarding your hardware; you just have to
correctly identify your cdrom type to the linux installer.

vi comes with linux. I found the learning curve steep. Emacs was easier to
start out with. I have found Word Perfect (comes with Corel Linux, or
download for free) to be congenial, if your used to the major Win word
