I'm trying to install a new IDE cdrom into my linux system.
I just bought a 4x spin sony CDU 76E. It has an IDE/ATAPI
interface. Since I was running linux 1.1.59, which doesn't
have the IDE CD drivers built in, I decided now would be a
good time to install the latest Slackware release. I
already had a sony CDU 31a installed, and figured I could
get both drives running. Well, after having saved my
important files, I reformatted the drive and installed off of the
new sony cdu 76E. When I got things up and running, I recompiled
the kernel, adding the 31a support. I restarted, and the 76E
works fine, but I didn't see anything about the 31a. So I looked
at the CDROM-HOWTO faq and it seemed to say I needed to add
this line to the end of lilo.conf:
I went ahead and did this, but still, no dice. Don't see any
messages at all about looking for a cdrom or whatever. I know
that I have compiled in the driver, as well as the sound driver.
I don't know if it matters, but my PAS sound is set to an invalid
IRQ. This shouldn't affect the CDROM, though. Anybody
help out there?
