I have a similar setup in which my linux drive is slave to a dos drive.
I had to reinstall and enable the dos drives partitions by supplying a
mount point. i used /mnt and then after reboot did 'mkdir -p
/mnt/whatever' (used dos1,dos2,dos3) for each partition and used (fstool
in X) to reset the correct mount point.
X's file system config tool will let you change mount point but not
filesystem type. You can edit 'fstab' and put in 'msdos' under
'filesystem' if your drives show up there. my dos drives were hda1, hda2
etc and the linux slave was hdb1,hdb2(swap),hdb3. the m*is now i
can get stuff off my dos drives !!!
my sblaster cdrom (PnP)doesnt work either! can't helpt there sorry -Pete
