I am working on a machine which has no IDE CD-ROM in it, but has a BIOS
which allows you to boot up off a USB CD-ROM. I successfully boot up off the
CD-ROM using Mandrake 8.0, but then it gets to a certain point (after doing
all the hardware indentification and it puts the title "Welcome to
Linux-Mandrake") where it says:
Welcome to Linux-Mandrake (8.0) Apr 18 2001 10:16:16
Please wait: Trying to access a CD-ROM disc (drive (none))
((none)).Quote:> I can't access a Linux-Mandrake Installation disc in your CD-ROM drive
What can I do (by putting some command line arguments on the "linux
Can I custom burn a new CD-ROM with other drivers in the kernel?
By the way, if you do know about how to burn custom installation CD-ROM, I'd
appreciate knowing that, as I would like to add some programs to what
Linux-Mandrake loads into the ramdisk when it boots up in rescue mode. I
would like to add some programs to the /bin it created when it builds the
ramdisk it runs from. I would also like to increase the size of the ramdisk
As well, I would like to also have the kernel have some additional drivers
built into it for rescue mode (i.e., 1394 stuff).
What choices do I have to do my install from a USB drive. Now please, dont
tell me to use a different CD-ROM, tell me how I can make what I have work.
