Seems this is a really common error message, but I can't find any deja or
current news to help me. I am trying to install Red Hat 5.0 on a DX/66 with 16M
Ram and 2x CD drive (Createive Labs, Funai E2550UA).
After booting from the floppy, I get to the "install from where" prompt and
choose "Local CDROM", it then prompts me to pick a CD type and I choose
Soundblaster type. It then offers an autoprobe or speicfy options. I have tried
the autoprobe, it can't do it and the specify options bit is a little strange.
It has sbpcd= entrybox and a miscellaneous options entry box.
So I checked out the hardware HOWTO and that lists explicitly that this drive
is supported (good ... relief) and that the sbpcd driver is the one to use, but
the docs say you specify if it's in the kernel command line with the sbpcd line
while the prompt dring the 5.0 install requires IO Base, IRQ, label. Anything
and everything I have tried doesn't seem to get past the "mount failed: invalid
argument" response. BTW it appear as though some response is garnered by the
system since the door seems to rattle a little (and the light flashes on a little).
Q. What do I have to enter on each of the lines (ie. explicitly direct me to
the format e.g. do I need spaces or commas separating parameters?, do I need
the IRQ for the CD?, is it the same as the soundcard IRQ (i.e. 5 ... 'cos there
aint an IRQ listed under Win95's view of the system)?,etc etc) of the specify
options section to allow me to get to the next section of the install? Do I
need anything on the "Miscellaneous options" line?
Thanks in desperation.
