I took a look in documentation of my Plextor CDROM. The jumper is called
"blocksize" but not all drives provide it. I guess if you can't find the info,
your drive cannot be switched into this mode (this is why I bought a Plextor
CDROM for instance).
Anyway, this mode is only required by the boot prom to boot off CDROM directly.
Linux can cope with standard 2048 bytes/sector when loaded, thefore you can try
booting from floppy (rescue+root images) or network (tftpboot image) then
continue to install from CDROM.
Hope this helps.
