Installing on Dell Latitude D420 - mount external DVD player

when i choose No 2 'Select Packages' from the setup menu i try choosing 'mount the cd-rom and install from there'. But i get 'no cd drives were found'. I understand that my cd/dvd drive isn't mounted, but i can't find out how to mount it. I thought it was mounted since i managed to boot from it...

Suggestions?

Have you tried with one of tpowa's ISOs? See the topmost thread in this forum.

Thanks for the reply! I have downloaded his base iso, and the external dvd mounted.

So far i've installed the base packages successfully. I'll continue when i get home from work.
