Help, please: CD-ROM on parallel port

Help, please: CD-ROM on parallel port

Post by J.Lutt.. » Thu, 21 Mar 1996 04:00:00

Hej !

Since a while I have a CD-ROM drive on my parallel port (because
I have a notebook running Linux on it). Now I really want to know
if someone knows how to use it under Linux (I work with the  kernel version
1.2.13). The CD-ROM drive connection is NOVECA's RAP//CD.

Thank you !



1. Parallel Port CD-ROM?

I have a laptop and a desktop and I would like to buy a single CD-ROM for both
of them.  A parallel port CDROM seems to be the only option.  In the CDROM
HOW-TO that I looked at, the author was unaware of any Linux support for
a parallel CDROM.  Is one currently being developed or does the latest
kernel support it now?

Please respond to me directly as my news service is sometimes flakey.

Thanks for any info,
