I have a Sony CD-ROM drive hooked up to a Reveal SC500 sound card (note
that this is the "Sound FX Wave", not the "Sound FX Wave32"). The
Sony is compatible with Linux, but I don't know about the Reveal. One of
things about the Reveal is that it has a special device driver load that
activates the CD-ROM controller (the device driver doesn't stay resident,
it just configures the CD-ROM controller so that the Sony device driver
(and, subsequently, MSCDEX) can recognize it.
Naturally, this device driver is DOS, not Linux. :-(
Does anyone know if this setup will work with Linux (i.e., do drivers
exist?)? I heard that someone got Linux to work with a Reveal SC400:
assuming the CD-ROM is similar (heh heh heh), is this part of the
distribution, or will I need to recompile the kernel (yucky icky yucky)?
