have u tried holding any hotkey combinations @ boot?? I am reading this right yeah?? Your not able to get your box to boot from the cd correct??

Try :
F8
F4
F1
F2
ESC
ALT + ESC
DELETE
etc. etc.

evenually one of those will boot your box from the cd-rom... F12 will do a network boot and then you wouldnt even have to burn the iso! :radio:

newayz.. try those.. if none of that worx then your disc is probably damaged.. try burning it again... if it still doesnt work chck your checksums... which you should have done newayz... If you can't figure it out then sell your computer! :ninja:

well, you might try the all in one boot floppy and use that to boot from a CD using gentoo, perhaps that'll help
