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!
