install problem with LinuxPPC 2k & cdrom

Post by Sixe » Thu, 23 Mar 2000 04:00:00

I just got my LinuxPPC 2000 cdrom and i've tried to install Linux.  After
running the installer and restarting.  I start the linux boot sequence for
the installer but it runs into an error with the cdrom...
i get something like:

hda: cdrom_decode_status: status=0x51 {DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hda: cdrom_decode_status: error=0x34

and then i get a bunch of stuff scrolling on the screen (looks like errors)

and finally it says something like:

can't seem to find live filesystem

It then starts up the RedHat installer which can't read the cdrom either.

anybody have any idea what this is????  Please help!
