In a previous post, I wrote that neither mitsumi nor amitsumi would recoginize
my CD drive, with or without boot parameters. To the people that emailed me
with suggestions, thanks. Apparently, some Mitsumi drives are OK with the
current boot disk images, and others are not.
Since Red Hat's boot/image found the CD, I first tried the suggestion to
install Slackware from Red Hat. After much frustration, I gave that up. Each
distribution expects the CD and the target Linux partition to be in hard to
figure out places. Plus, I had to keep adding directories into the PATH to see
the correct programs, often causing other anomolies.
The suggestion to load Slackware from a DOS partition, just enough of it to be
able to build a new kernel, worked great :). Specifying Mitsumi and ISO9660
support when configuring the kernel work fine to see my CD.
