I have a Mitsumi 2x FX001D CD-ROM connected to a Sound Blaster Multi-CD
w/ASP. It works perfectly in Dos and Windows, but when I tried to
install Slackware Linux off of the InfoMagic March Linux CD, The setup
program on the Root disk couldn't find my CD-ROM. I used the color 1.44
root disk and tried Mitsumi (propietary interface), standard ide, atapi,
and sbpro cd options. It didn't find the cd with any of those options.
Is there a drive or patch that will allow me to use the Mitsumi cd-rom?
Is the problem that Linux doesn't support the SB16 MCD? (It has
connectors for Mitsumi FX001D, SONY, and Panasonic cd-roms) I have an
interface card that came with the cd-rom drive, but I don't have an
extra slot to put it in, so I haven't tried it that way, but I would
think that it would work off the SB16 MCD in Linux as well as Dos. It
uses the standaard MSCDEX driver. Please mail me with any informaton
that might help. Thanks.
