I've recently purchased slackware on CDROM but can't seem to get
the thing installed onto my system from the CDROM drive. When I use the
idecd.gz boot disk I get no confimation that my drive exists and when I
try to run setup it says that it can't find a CDROM drive attached to
either the primary or secondary conroller.
The problem, I suspect, is that the drive is attached to a
jumperless Mitsumi Mozart sound card. The drive is also a Mitsumi but
has an IDE interface. DOS/Windows have no problem with the drive but, of
course, DOS loads the proper drivers that configure the I/O address and
IRQ at bootup.
If anyone has dealt with this problem before and found a
solution, I'd appreciate hearing it. I know that if worse comes to worse
I can load the CD onto my hard drive and install from there but I'd like
to be able to access the CDROM drive in the future from Linux as well.
