Make sure that the BIOS actually sees the CDROM drive when you do the reboot. I have come across this once in a while when all of a sudden the BIOS does not pick the CDROM drive up when rebooting and therefor 2000 does not show it.

It could be adrive slight incompatibility if you have it running on the same channel as a HDD. Try it by itself on its own channel.

Cheers ....

Check your power and IDE cable connections on the CD-ROM and motherboard. Make sure they are secure. Also a good idea to set the IDE channel that your CD-ROM resides on, to auto-detect in the BIOS.
