I have just attempted to install Slackware 96 last night, but failed
to be able to do so from the provided CD media. After performing a
source select for a "General IDE/ATAPI" drive, the setup program
successfully spins up the CR-ROM and mounts it to /dev/hdc.
After selecting the programs to install, and attempting to commence
with a full installation, the CD fails to spin. In fact, the drawer
won't even open until I reboot Win95.
The CD in question is a Mitsumi IDE 12x drive. While the setup does
indicate a choice for Mitsumi drives (suggesting a proprietary non-IDE
interface), that selection fails to scan & mount. The boot & root disks
used contained the BARE.I and COLOR.GZ contents. I don't yet know if
other alternatives may contain the drivers needed or not.
Thanks in advance,
