    First off, you don't want to access the D:\ drive unless you happen to have need of the tools loaded from the bootup disk. The D:\ drive is the RAMdrive that was created to hold the tools.

    Now, if you continue to receive a drive not ready message but it says that the driver was loaded successfully, then you may have a problem either with the IDE cable or the setting up of the CD drive itself. You might try changing the ribbon (IDE) cable and see if this helps. If the problem still exists, make sure that the CD is loaded onto a separate channel than the hard drive and make sure that any necessary jumpers are correctly in place. Usually the lone drive will need to be set up as either Master or have no jumper... depends on the drive.
