Hi, I'm new to Linux and trying to install it on my computer. I bought
the 'Toolkit for Linux' from Walnut Creek. When I used the scsi boot
disk and color144 root disk, it would recognize my SCSI controller (Pro
Audio Spectrum 16) but not the SCSI CDROM attached to it. Finally, I
copied the A disks onto floppies and installed with those. I thought
then I might be able to mount it. As instructed in the CDROM-HOWTO, I ran:
mknod /dev/sr0 b 11 0
mount -r -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /cdrom
but it said that /dev/sr0 was not a valid block device. Doesn't the 'b'
in the mknod command create it as a block device?
Also, I read in another post to
to find out about my active devices, but I have neither of those files.
Any ideas? I don't want to install ALL of the Linux stuff by disk!
