Ok, bug / problem fix sought ;) :):

I'm booting Ubuntu Hoary Live CD (Array 6 and the MD5SUM checked out
fine) and it boots ok and begins detecting various pieces of hardware
but coughs on the CD/DVD drive, meaning, it could not find a driver for
my CD/DVD so then I have to stop the installation.  That is, I keep
ending up back at the install menu where it says that the CD drive has
not been detected yet.  It asks me if I want to pick a driver from a
list, and I've tried various ones "cdrom" etc. with no luck.

I've seen others post about this same problem in several places (at
least 3 threads), but still there have been no replies... hoping for
one soon.  :)

My hardware is: Dell XPS Gen 3 (Pentium 4 3.6 GHZ), DDR-2 RAM, SATA
7200 rpm hard drive.

The CD-ROM is a CD / DVD RW combo drive...  I believe it's an IDE
drive.. listed in XP properties as "HL-DT-ST DVD+RW GRA-4120B".

MEPIS had no problem detecting my CD drive. And the drive works just
fine in Windows XP SP2.

Thanks for any ideas!!! :^D.

I'd really like to be able to try out the live CD before installing
Ubuntu. I'd much prefer to go with Hoary since Warty is kinda out of
date by now.

I wish I could install Ubuntu    ](*,)
