I had a similar problem when installing on a server I build using a
DG965 Intel motherboard. Maybe yours is the same? I was able to
install by taking out the CD drive and putting it in a temporary
enclosure and connecting it via USB. You might have to make some bios
changes to enable this. I eventually went to Feisty instead, since
that has direct support for the 965-series's gimpy IDE chipset, but
it's a home server. For a real one (where you don't want to have to
muck with it until 2011), try the USB method and 6.06 instead. Hope
that helps.
