Will I have to figure out how to make a kernal to install? This CD-ROM
drive is not recognized. It's from a Gateway P60.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Larry

Not sure what CDROM kernel modules are on the boot disks, but there is
definitely a driver in the standard kernel (under the (non-IDE-SCSI)
options.

You may have to select "other CDROM" (not sure how RH7 does it), then
choose the appropriate one (probably called Standard Mitsumi drive or
similar).

Hope this helps.

1. Does Linux support Mitsumi FX-001D CD-ROM?

Greetings Netters....
You may recognize my handwritting...I have been asking a lot of questions
recently about purchasing a PC to run Linux on. I have what I hope will
be my last question to you all....does Linux work with the Mitsumi FX-001D
CD-ROM drive as supplied with Gateway 2000 machines?

I lied <sorry>....one more question...

Does anybody reading this know if Linux will work with the Gateway 2000
SoundBlaster 'compatible' card which is available as an option on their
machines....?

Any replies much appreciated...thanx in advance.

Thats it.....I'm done! Hopefully that will be the last of my questions on this
subject....its a real nightmare trying to buy the perfect machine for Linux
on a limited budget. Thanks to everyone who has replied to my constant quizzing
over the last 2 weeks or so.....its been a great help.

C U all round the net....
