I am trying to install Slackware 96 on an old PC that I have and am
having a hard time finding the appropriate boot disk image for this
IBM Easy option CD model no 650. This thing comes with its own
interface card. I choose soundblaser and it seems to work even though
it doesn't plug into a sound blaster. During installation it couldn't
find a CD during the scan for one. So I forced sound blaster
selection. During the installation I kept getting the following
sbpcd-0 sbp-data: CDi status loop expired
sbpcd-0 sbp-data: timeout (timed out data)
sbpcd-0 sbp-data: read aborted by drive
sbpcd-0 st_check detected - retry
this sequence would sometimes repeat 2 or 3 times. It always seemed
to happen after I choose weather to install a package or not. The
installation worked regardless of these errors.
Anyhow, I would like to know what I should choose for a CD driver.
Please reply via E-mail.
