    this is not a problem with the CDs or CD-ROM drives.
    actually your BIOS is not extracting the sectors of your CD-ROM the way it should be and since Linux is highly senstitve on CheckSums and signatures of the files, you are not able to boot from CD.
    i would recommend making a boot diskette using rawrite utility and use that diskette to install either directly from HD (you must be having those ISOs somewhere on your HD) or from CD-ROMs.
    that way it won't use CD for booting.

    Thanks asklepios.

    I made the boot disk but it's not working.
    Tried graphic and text mode.
    vmlinux loads and the next file loads awhile then I get the "boot failed, change disks and hit a key to continue".

    I give up... :grr: I'll just stick with Window$ on that box.
    It was just a dust collector anyway.

    I appreciate all your help.

    :cheers:
