CD Burning (not) in XP.

Needed to burn some software onto CD for a server that I’m rebuilding that will not let me install the network card for. I downloaded a 22mb file onto the laptop and then somehow had to get it onto the server. XP would let me go through the motions of burning the file onto cd but then kept telling me to put a blank disk in (it was a brand new (expensive) one I had purchased from Tesco). Booted into Mandrake and ran through the k3 burn wizard in Gnome. This detected the cd drive and all looked hunkydory until I tried to burn the cd when it decided that I didn’t actually have a cd device available. Logged into KDE and same result. However right clicking on the cdrom icon on the desktop gave me the option to burn to cd – lo and behold that worked. So I’ve now got the Raid software on the server….now to get the network card working. Anyone know how to get round a “parameter not correct” problem when installing an AMD PCnet card into an IBM X-Series 230 and upgrading the box from nt4 to w2k?
