I am booting linux during set up using what I belived was the proper disks
for my mitsumi cd-rom player.  I have set up my file system, made a swap
drive activated it, mounted a separate dos partition then when set-up
comes time to start loading files --- it cannot mount my cd-rom drive?????

Help please!!!!  What Have I done wrong??? any suggestions would be
welcome with open arms.



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!
