i really don't think that is the problem, although it won't hurt to try if you want.
is this xp pro you are trying now?
here is the support email for your mobo
maybe give them a holler.
it's drivin me nuts that it won't take the cd? doesn't make any sense to me at all. when i did it i just went to other and popped in the mobo cd and it loaded off of that.
