I have slackware on cdrom and want to set linux up from the cd, but I cannot find a kernel that will detect my cdrom. The cdrom that I have is a "reveal" - "matsushita-kotobuki".
Can anyone point me to a solution.

Have you creat the boot disk with sbpcd.i ?  Try the idecd.i or
bare.i if you are connected to the hardisk controller(secondary IDE).
