[LAU] Is there an install CD for 64Studio 2.0?

I've experienced DVD drives that don't read particular DVD media that I
burn on other drives.  Sometimes fixable by either burning the DVD
slower, burning in another drive, or using another type of DVD media,
even DVD-RW.  Sometimes also fixable by running my finger around the
spindle hole or whistling that machine tune from Close Encounters.

Another workaround I've used is to obtain a reliable DVD drive and place
it in a 133.350mm USB to IDE casing.  This requires BIOS support for
boot from USB attached DVD.

Been there, done that.  Only in desperation.  The connectors on hard
drives have a limited design lifetime in terms of mating and removal.

Your approach sounds good ... find if there is another installation
