I need help!! I have a 100 MHz Pentium with a Mitsumi 4X IDE CD-ROM.
I just received, and attempted to install, the new SlackWare Linux
release from CD. Almost everything worked great -- it was so easy to
install that an idiot could do it. So I must have a hardware problem :-)
Anyway, the boot kernel could not mount the CD-ROM, so I copied the disk
sets to my hard drive and built the system. The CD-ROM still would not
mount. I rebuilt the kernel and spent about 10 hours reading HOW-TOs
and FAQs. It just will not work! %-(
Here is the weird part: When the mount is attempted, the system
complains that iso9660 support was not built into the kernel. However,
I *did* built it in and doing a cat /proc/filesystems seems to prove it.
What am I doing wrong?!! Or, what should I be doing that I'm not?
Any advice would be appreciated because I have no clue at this point.
Direct e-mail is preferred.
