AFAIK, you can't install from an EIDE CDROM on a Sound Blaster (you 
didn't say that your CD is EIDE, but I assume it is). If this is the 
case, connect your CDROM as a slave to the primary EIDE controller on the 
motherboard (again, I'm assuming you're using an EIDE disk, since you 
didn't specify your configuration). This should work (I have a Creative 
8x on a DEC Venturis FX and it works fine).

Make sure it is a slave, and use the ATAPI installation floppy. Anyhow, 
to be more helpful, people will have to know more about your configuration.
