I have a version of Linux installed. It was horribly
difficult to do so. I have a TEAC 4x CD-ROM drive and
apparently I never got the correct driver.

I would like someone to tell me of a version of Linux which
is compatible with my CD-ROM drive. If there is, how
do I get rid of the version I have NOW?

Normally, this should be an IDE ATAPI CD-ROM drive. I've browsed through the kernel source code, and I can't find any special options for a TEAC.
There could be something wrong with your drive. Have you tried it with another OS?
I don't know which kernel version you have. Since all these drivers tend to evolve rather quickly, you might want to upgrade your kernel. (Latest stable release is 2.0.29)
If your kernel is older than 2.0, I suggest you get a new distribution: a lot of packages need updating when upgrading to Linux 2.0.
