I have Red Hat 4.1 on PCW cover disc, I am asked about
sbpcd settings. Autoprobe fails to find drive.
My Sound Galaxy Basic 16 is at 220h IRQ 5
and DMA 3, the CD-ROM base is 300h.

At the prompt sbpcd = IO base, IRQ, label
My PC is V basic 386SX 4Mb RAM 240 Mb HDD Hercules Mono

I am stuck.

At the boot prompt, you have to enter the name of the image first. (Something like `linux', `boot' - the right name should be somewhere in the documentation, or on the screen.)
After that, you have to enter the parameters for your CD-ROM:
sbpcd=300,?,Soundblaster
Replace the `?' by the IRQ number of the CD. Check the manual of your card for that.
