fresh installation F10 fails



On a new box with Vista pre-installed I want to also install F10. I want to have a dual boot system. I have done this an couple of times before so I was surprised to see it fail. In Vista I made the partition shrink and created a new one. I then put the F10 installation-DVD in the machine and rebooted. The DVD started spinning as expected. The question to check the media came up. After the message that anaconda was running the screen fell blank and the installation process stopped. I rebooted several times, every time with the same result. The same happened when I inserted the F10-live cd. Finally I inserted the Knoppix live cd; after a short while there was a message that it was looking for the installation-DVD, but it could not find it. A lot of devices ran over the screen, like "/dev/scd0 /dev/scd1" etc. The device with the DVD was not found.
I never had this problem before.
Can't the installer mount the dvd-device?
Does anyone have a suggestion?
Peter
