Ouch.

Why do you need the computer to be able to boot from a cd?

Perhaps I’m not understanding the problem. Could you please re-type the question.

Well, in your original post, there was something about trying to get your computer to boot from a CD. Now it is starting to sound like you are having a problem with the cd-rom itself. Either way, I know nothing about Linux so I am unable to help you from this point.

Sorry.
