Help! How to mount a TEAC CD-ROM?

Post by en306.. » Sat, 15 Jul 1995 04:00:00

Dear sir,

        Excuse me, I am a beginner of Linux, and I got a kenerl 1.2.8 yesterday.
But I found that I can not mount my CD-ROM drive. I am using TEAC Quad speed
CD-55A CD-ROM. And I knew that when I used the boot disk to boot up my
computer, I could see that the system can detect my CD-ROM and gave out
the drive ID. No. 0. Does any expert can help me, please ?

        I connect it with sound blaster pro card, adress 220, irq 5 and
DMA is 3.

" I want to run, I want to hide,
        I want to tear down the walls, that hold me inside.
                I want to reach out, and touch the flame,
                        Where the streets have no name, ......  " - U2

1. CD-ROM mount needs source <--> source needs CD-ROM mount

I've just ploughed through the entirety of misc,hardware and setup, to no
avail;  I installed Linux from the sbpcd boot disk (as I have a Panasonic
CD-ROM drive hanging off a SoundBlaster-compat. card), and the CD-ROM drive
chugged away happily to give me the OS.  However, my concerns about the size of
everything I was prompted to install made me decide NOT to install the linux

Now, when I boot up the CD drive cannot be mounted because of 'wrong fs, blah
blah, or other error'.  I interrogated sbpcd.h (I *did* install the includes)
and the setup was incorrect.  Because I can't mount the CD drive I can't get
the source off the CD - re-booting off the boot disk (sbpcd) and trying a
reinstall  from the CD using setup gives a warning that the CD drive can't be

Should I delete the linux partition and start from scratch again?  I do really
need to access the CD drive, and I realise now that it is kind of useful to
have the OS source.

Apart from that, it's great having a proper OS on my PC at last!
