It's me again.
When I boot up the kernel, it says:
"Checking for CD... Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
no CD found..."
And also this is the EXACT message I get when i type:
darkstar:~# mount /dev/mcd /cdrom <ENTER>
mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/mcd as a block device. (maybe `insmod driver'?)
Maybe now someone can help me. (I need that darn CD!)
