Hi,

    I'm posting this for a friend who doesn't have Internet
access ... He wants to buy the Panasonic CR-562 CD-ROM drive
and wonders if the Slackware Professional 2.0 CD-ROM from
Morse Telecommunication can be run directly from that drive
without any trouble ...

    Any advice will be very much appreciated.  Thankyou.

I can't speak for that particular CD-ROM but I have a CR-562 drive and the
kernel supports it perfectly so I should say that it would work fine.

  I just installed a CR-563 with my SB16 yesterday and it works great! I'm
running slackware v2.0 with kernel 1.0.8 with no problems at all.

The Panasonic 562 is supported in Slackware Professional.

Shurely you can install each Slackware Linux distribution directly
from any CD with any Matsushita/Panasonic drive. Since generations,
and you could do it even before the days of 0.99.14x ...

"Running directly from the CD" is an other thing. That depends upon
the matter that the CD holds a "live" filesystem. It is (due to
slowness) recommended only if you can't spare enough hard disk space
or just want to try a bit before really using Linux.

Greetings ... Eberhard

1. Does a Panasonic CR-563-B CD-ROM drive act like a CR-562?

I can't get the Fall '93 Yggdrasil Linux CD-ROM to boot up
on my PC.  I have a 586 box with a Panasonic CR-563-B drive
connected to a sound-less interface card ("Golden" brand).
The drive works find under DOS, but Linux does not seem to be
aware of its existance.  I have the interrupt disconnected
(the jumper on the card completely removed), but as far as I
know, the Linux driver doesn't use the interrupt.  The base address
is 310H.

Should this setup work?  Is the 563 drive really different than the 562?
Can I get a updated boot disk or something what will work with this drive?

Thanks,

Doug Braun
