PCMCIA cd-rom on Thinkpad

Post by Kwon Heejeon » Sat, 17 Aug 1996 04:00:00



Hello.
I'm currently trying to install Linux Slakware 3.0.0 on my thinkpad
notebook.(thinkpad 701c)
Few days ago, I got a new pcmcia cd-rom (SCSI) from Panasonic.
In that case, what set of boot/root disks should I use?
And if necessary, what kind of parameter should I write to
boot: prompt?

I'm respecting for your kind answers, thanks.

With your ThinkPad 701C you probably have either the KXL-D720 or the
KXL-D740 CD-ROM from Panasonic.  If you have the D720, it will *not*
work under Linux.  The D740 *is* supported.
