I'm a newbie trying to install debian on my old 486 which has a SONY
CDU33a cd-rom this is not a IDE cd-rom, instead the cd-rom is connected
with a host adapter card.
When I installed debian I had to use a diskette called drv1440.bin to
load the appropriate module, which I did correctly. The troubles begin
when I reboot my machine and want to run dselect to continue installing
the software. When I reboot I clearly see the following line " loading
modules cdu31a " So this is ok. But when I look at /dev I can't find any
reference to the cdrom instead, and this is very weird, I find a file
cdu535. cdu535 is an other type of SONY cdrom, but I haven't loaded a
module for this one. How is this possible?
When I run dselect I have to choose Acces method. I then choose cdrom. I
get following question "Insert the CD-ROM and enter the block device
name :" I have no idea what to answer, since cdu31 isn't in /dev.
I can also choose "mounted" as an acces method but then I have no idea
how to mount the cdrom (cdu33 that is)
Anybody has a solution. Any suggestions.
All help greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance
