I have a friend with a proprietary mitsumi CD ROM, and what in the end
turned out to be the problem was that in the source code Mitsumi was
hard wired to IRQ 9 or 10, not sure, and it couldn't get recognized
because the SCSI card would occupy this IRQ first.  I recommend you
check the kernel source file for mitsumi CD ROM and see what it says
there.

Cheers,

Ned

 
 
 

1. <<<<<soundconfig problem <<<<<<<

hi,
I have a PC100 m747 mainboard
with onboard SIS AGP 6326 8meg videocard
with onboard Sound 3d with sounblaster 16 and WSS support

my SIS videocard works fine
i have problems to configure the soundcard
it claims to be soundblaster compatible , but installing a
'sounblaster 16' , 'soundblaster pro' 'WSS' 'MAD16' has no effect
just "modprobe: devive is busy or not found"
