problems installing SuSE 7.2
Posted on 2001-07-05
I try to install SuSE 7.2 on my windows machine. 1 partition gets windows, the other Linux. I have 2 problems:
1. de cd-rom (Sony cdu33a) is not detected. The docs say this is correct, and I should specify a kernel parameter cdu31a=address,irq. I do so (in the kernal parameters box), but the cd-rom can still not be mounted during install. If I try a 'load cd-rom modules' I only get a Philips cd-rom, I can not select e.g. the cdu31a driver
2. plan B was to copy certain specified directories from the cd-rom to the windows partition, and then tell the install program to install from hard disk. If I do this, the install program stops without any message, even before I can tell it where to install.
what to do?
