installing RH8 on D510 ...

I'm trying to install dual boot XP and RH8 on a d510 - XP is on by factory default and when I boot disk 1 of the RH8 distro, it stops telling me it can't find the RH media in my CDROM (during install process!). I've tried the following:
- changed DVD and CDRW from secondary IDE channel to primary.
- tried booting from both DVD and CDRW
- disabling either DVD or CDRW at a time

It looks like there's a setting in the BIOS somewhere to set the system into UNIX mode, but I can't find it.

Any ideas, as the system DOES boot from the CD and you can see all my IDE devices being recognised by linux when initialising.

When exactly is this happening? Is it before starting the graphical installer? Have you checked if there are BIOS updates for the machine available?
