Im running slackware 3.0 kernel 1.3.

My problem is getting it to read my cd rom.  During boot up I get a line that says unable to identify cd rom format.
I have a very generic 16x ide cdrom (hi-val, i believe is the brand) and it uses the standard iso 9660 format.

I have it connected as a slave to my ide hard drive so the device name is /dev/hdb instead of /dev/cdrom.

My question is how do i get linux to read /dev/hdb as an iso 9660 cdrom.

Thanks for your help!

If you don't have a cd in the cd-rom when you boot it will give you this message. However if you do you should try the following command:

mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdb /cdrom.
This should mout the cdrom on /cdrom and you should then be able to use it.....
