Hello, all.

I am trying to install Ubuntu Server and/or Xubuntu, but neither is working at all on my machine. I have gotten tips and advice, but still no show. My question is based on the fact that I have an Acorn (or CSA) CD-R Drive, and because I am led to believe that it's my CD drive, and not my other hardware. I'm wondering: is there a driver for these drives? If so, where could I find one?

Thanks!

I believe so, but if you're suggesting Wubi, don't try. The installer calls for 5GB, but my HDD is only 4.3GB max.

EDIT: It's Windows 98, by the way.
