!st let me say The cd's are good.
BIOS is set to cd 1st.
I dont know but it seems to jump to Grub to fast.
Mint and XP boot fine from grub. The last thing I did was update linux-686 I think. I left some room at the end of my HD to play with other distros.
Would it be possible to run cd from grub.
In case I didn't say
No cds will boot just goes to grub and all works good
