i'm trying to install 8.4 on a thinkpad x230, which uses a usb cdrom.
according to the hardward docs, 8.4 supports teac cd-210pu.  that is what i
am using.  the box boots up fine from the installation cd.  but when it comes
to choosing an installation medium, the system doesn't find the device.
idea, anyone?
