Linux normally supports out of the box any CDROM drive. Unless you have something really exotic, you don't have to bother with any driver. Which Linux distribution did you try to install and in what stage of the installation did the error occur?

Actually I've used 3 versions of linux before and they've never been able to support my CDrom's or Drivers for most out of the box equipment.

But their are special patches you can buy off linux vendors to fix this problem. Just Google it and do the research for the particle patch or software you might need to buy.

There are plenty of resources on linux out there.

But having said that this is the very reason I just stick to windows just because its less hassle for compatibility.
