SubjectStrange brew...

I have a question for ya's all. A friend of mine just got a distribution
of Linux (InfoMagic), and began to install. Below is his hardware as he
sent to me. The problem is that Linux wouldn't properly find his CD-ROM,
and now it finally did, but M$ Lose '95 seems to think it's gone... He's
starting to think that somehow it got damaged now, something I told him I
don't believe is possible, but neither of us have an idea. Perhaps
someone ehre could shed some light upon it, or at least give us some
ideas where to look.
