then question is that when i try to install linux with ( redhat , slackware or debian ) they say to me this :
irq time out error : 0x50
irq time out error : 0x21

i dont understand this message
i have a 24x pioneer CD + pentium 200MMX + 32 mbRam + 4,5 Gb HD.
well i can see that my motherboard have a busmaster channel
could be than busmaster the problem?
i have a boot CD (Debian ) and when debian boot debian can read the initial program but he can't go beyond. when debian tell me that are going to check my hardware is when i have the problem. alwais the same message irq timeout error.
When i start linux , linux can detect my CD because at then beginning linux show me: ide1 IDEATAPI CD-ROM 24x Pioneer ...

This may not solve your CD problem, but It may provide an alternate way to install LINUX.

You seem t have sufficient cpacity on your drive to copy the LINUX installation files to your hard drive. During the LINUX setup you are prompted to specify from which source the installation files should come from. You can specify the C drive.

The install program will look at the C drive for the installation files instead of your CDROM.

Again I am offering an alternative way to install LINUX, if your priority is geeting LINUX installed first. You can then pursue the CDROM solution after theinstall.
