Default Re: no cdrom device found

I have absolutely no idea how Mandriva installer works or what options it offers during installation, but I would try to load amd74xx, and restarting udev if installer is using it. If udev is not used, try creating block device node(s) by hand:
mknod /dev/hda b 3 0
mknod /dev/hdb b 0 64
mknod /dev/hdc 22 0
mknod /dev/hdd 22 64
hda == primary master, hdb == primary slave, hdc == secondary master, hdd == secondary slave

Christianity, noun: The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.
