I am in need of upgrading our operating system from a CD, and have an old
4D/25 which only has a tape drive on it. Of course, the media as now
distributed is CD, so I need to put a CD-ROM reader on the system to do the
upgrade. I have a couple of CD-ROM drives I could use: an older Apple CD,
and an NEC CDR-36 -- both of which I use on Macintosh systems (SCSI
interface). My questions are: Is there a way I can use either one of
these CD-ROM drives on the SGI? Will the software drivers on the 4D/25
handle either one of these drives? Do I need to obtain some driver
software from somewhere before I can use one of these drives?
Thanks in advance!
