I seem to have the same /dev configuration (and dates) as your installation
so thats ok
also the fstab file is fine.
I don't have a file isofs.o in my /lib/modules/kernel-ver/fs
directory. Do I need this file??
(someone mentioned this to me)
The CDRom is functioning ok as I ran the win NT setup disks and it detected
an ATAPI (PCI) cdrom controller.
