Re: no cdrom device found
Hmm, true, it could really be that the kernel on the Live CD is a little too old or just slightly ripped not to support nForce4. In that case there are not too many options. Of course you could build your own kernel and create otherwise identical CD, but that would sort of kill the idea of downloadable Live CD.
While I don't have any further suggestions, it's good to hear the actual distro works. It's good to have a choice, isn't it?-)
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.
