I hate to ask this again, but I have more information, so thought it
would be okay...8)
I'm trying to install InfoMagic's Slackware 2.2, Kernel 1.2 Linux
distribution on CDROM. I have a Reveal 4X CDROM on an IDE/TAPI
interface. I created the boot diskettes as appropriate and boot, create
my partitions, and start the setup. All goes well until it starts to
read from CDROM, I get an unexpected end of file and the following error
message on the console:
hdc: cdrom_read_from_buffer: buffer botch (312575)
end_request: I/O error, drv 1600, sector 312575
I exited SETUP and changed to the mounted directory. the files were
there as expected, but when I did a "cat" on a readme.lns and readme.dos
file, the file stopped and gave the above error message (different
sectors of course). Because the sector's are changing, I don't think
it's the media, but I could be wrong.
Any insight would be appreciated!
