CD rom works during install not afterwords.IDECDROM

I have SLACKWARE LINUX on CD-ROM I'm not sure the exact # of the kernal but it's 1.x.x anyhow, During the setup I make a boot disk and a root disk so that I can install off the CD.  I use IDE CD rom as HDB1.  It's installed in a IBM THINKPAD
365XD p-120, dual scan color, 4x IDE CD-ROM shown as TEAC in Win95.  Have a PCMCIA IBM 28.8 w/ integrated DAA and it doesn't work either.  However i"m concerned with the cD-rom.
I try to mount it. ie. <mount /dev/hdb /cdrom> and it says invalid device.  Yet it works fine in REDHAT LINUX.. but in REDHAT I can't get the PCMCIA card to run.  I'd rather run slackware I belive anyhow.  Plz help

Your problem is that you're attempting to mount the entire device and not a partition on that device (which you need to do for ide drives).  Try mounting /dev/hdb1 instead (easier to put it into your /etc/fstab file then mounting it by hand btw).

that should do the trick. :)
