Install CD won't work

I'm changing from Red Hat 7 to Fedora.
With the Fedora Core 3 install CD 1, I press enter for graphic mode but it
starts in text mode, no problem. When I get to [what type of media] I click on
Local CDROM I get the message [The Fedora Core CD was not found in any of your CDROM drives] I checked the drive with an old Red Hat 7 it worked perfectly.

Samsung CD-ROM SC-140 40X

Any ideas

Is the cd rom the Master on the secondary IDE channel? if not that could be the problem--if it is--boot with the install CD and try at the first screen you see --the one with installation choices and F1 F2 F23 choices type in "linux mediacheck" and then hit enter--without the quote marks of course. Check each disk in turn and make sure all are ok--"PASS" showing for each disk. If all pass the install should go--ifit doesn't install again--reboot and try instead at the first screen typing in "linux text" and hit enter--again no quote marks.
Post again if needed.
