hello, i just installed mandrake 9.2 on my athlon 650 computer to dual boot with windows xp . however, at the middle of the installation process my computer just hanged. i then pressed reset to repeat the process again. now my cd writer is unusable even in windows xp. i think that the linux distro has something to do with it. i already did a firmware install but to no avail it still cannot read anything. please teach me how to revive the cd

thanks

rory
