While I was fighting to get the CDROM (Sony CDU76E ATAPI CD) to be mounted
I found in the README file in device dir that the ATAPI CDs connected to the
second IDE interface should be drived by /dev/hdc, when I did and mount gives
mount: iso9660 is not supported bt this kernel.
I installed InfoMagic Slakeware 2.2.1 (March 95 CDs).
While The kernel say it knows about the iso9660. I did
and iso9660 appeared as a block fs.
Before the /cdrom was linked to /dev/hd1a ( done by the setup) and I was
getting the message
mount: /dev/hd1a is not a block device.
I'm going to install the 1.2.10 kernel.
