Ok Wht If The Driver Is in the cd ?????

mount the cd and copy over to harddrive.  The thing is that I don't think driver is the problem, if you can install Fedora, Ubuntu in graphic mode, it is most probably xorg.conf problem.


How to copy When I cant acces my Hard disk????? and How To Mount the cd.???
Btn i tried Installing fedora 5, ubuntu, Suse 10, and Mandrike all Same problem!!!!!

Can you do this:

1) press ctrl-alt-f1
2) login as root
3) issue the command "mount /dev/cdrom"
4) if there is some error on (3) try to do "cat /etc/fstab" and cut and paste the output here
5) if there is no error on (3) try "ls /media" and see if your cdrom is mounted, if you can find the file, do "cp /media/cdrom0/nvidia*run ~/" to copy the file over to your home directory
6) do "cd ~/", you will have your file in that directory
