Ok, I installed Red Hat 6.1 from a SCSI CD Rom on a AHA-3940 SCSI controller. Everything went great until it went to bootup. It runs LILO and gets alomst done when it craps out. after it detects the TEAC SCSI Cd_Rom the exact wording is as follows Detected scsi CD-ROM sr0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 3, lun 0 scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid 0, scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0 test unit ready 00 00 00 00 00 then it just sits there.
When i put in the bootable CD rom and then type vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 it brings up a windows asking me if i want to remove the SCSI cd-rom i said keep the info and then it booted up. But i had no access to my Cd-Rom. So then i reboot the box,remove the bootable cd-rom and it goes back to the same problem. Is there something I'm missing ??
