I have an old Toshiba XM-3501B 4X cdrom which connected to the SCSI interface of my pas16 soundboard. The slackware96 did recognize the cdrom at booting, but when I try to mount it, the system locked! Does anyone know how to deal with this problem?
Thanks!

do you have SCSI support? try recompiling your kernel. you have to enable the SCSI CDROM support.

Which command did you use?
Do you get any messages?
Did you try with different CD's? (maybe you tried with a defective one).

Also some CD-ROM drives require a CD to be in the drive for it to be noticed.
