I have an IBM Thinkpad 760 ED labtop and I am trying to install Linux on it as its only operating system (No msdos, windows 95, 98 or NT). The labtop has a removable diskette drive and a removable cd-rom, but only one can be in at the same time (1 bay). I have a 1.2 Gig hard drive. I boot up using the diskette boot disk supplied with the product but, at the stage where it is supposed to recognise the cd-rom, it fails to do so. I tried every cd-rom option, setting the auto-probe option, but nothing works. (Prior to being asked to enter the CD, I remove the diskette drive and enter the cd-rom). I tried to copy the full CD to harddisk and install from there. However, it failed as it told me that I did not have enough space left to do so. I think that the CD-rom should be supported. What should I do? Is it possible that it does not recognise the CD-ROM driver because it initialises from the floppy drive and the CD-ROM device is not installed at that time?
