That is also what I get under "System -> System administration -> System 
The PC has a built-in FDD and a CDD.
This is not a netdrive.

I downloaded (twice) the live-CD version (Japanese) of the official site 
and burnt (twice) the image on a CD.
(which does not work with this PC. It does not start and I cannot 
install from it. BIOS IS set to boot from CD. When I put the same CD 
into one of my other computers it works fine)
