Well you need to mount your cdrom to access it... type 'mount /dev/cdrom' this should do the trick to access it type 'cd /mnt/cdrom'
i had the same problem with the blank screen ... i used Alt+Ctrl+Backspace a couple of times to turn the screen back on ... or reinstall linux and instead of typing 'linux text' you type 'linux askmethod text' . and tell it to use text login instead of graphic. (i think thats how you do it.
i know how to do this but if there is anyone here to tell me how to use the .run file i got. it would be great.
