I'm using a 6X Creative cdrom as well, and I too have faced this. One
way to get around it it is to copy all the slackware files onto your
hd and install from there. That's the way I did it. After that I had
to upgrade my kernel and make it so that I could use a sound card as
well as the six speed. You need the aidecd kernel I believe. It's
not the sbpcd bootdisk if you haven't tried it. If you read the
CDROM-HOWTO, KERNAL-HOWTO, and the SOUND-HOWTO. You can get
everything working. Just remember the cd you have is not considered a
sbpcd or a ide cd, it is in fact a ATAPI interface( new drives use
this) . Anyway, hope this helped. cya.
