Is anyone familiar with this product. I bought it and put it together, but there is no adapter to add a CD-ROM in order to load an OS. I was going to take it apart and connect a dual drive IDE cable, load the OS, then reassemble. I am concerned that it might overload the board. They also provide a PS/2 wire, but don't show where to connect it. I was going to try a USB first and see if it works. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

You can plug in a USB CD-ROM drive, and install from that. I did that with mine, no troubles... (I actually used a USB DVD-Writer)

I didn't realize it would recognize a usb drive before the OS was installed. Thanks.
