CD rom works during install not afterwords.IDECDROM
Posted on 1997-12-05
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
