Help! Installing Slackware 2.0 CD using Soundblaster CD-ROM

Help! Installing Slackware 2.0 CD using Soundblaster CD-ROM

Post by Tony Fa » Wed, 10 May 1995 04:00:00

I am having difficulties getting Linux to install on my PC.  I am using
the Slackware 2.0 CD (yes, it's old).  I am unsure what to specify for
the "source intallation media".

I believe the files are located in "D:\SLACKWAR\SLACKWA0\SLAKWARE" on the
CD rom.

When I specify the SOURCE in setup,
I choose "5. Install from CD-ROM",
then "5. SoundBlaster Pro (Panasonic) [ /dev/sbpcd ]",
then I choose "Custom"
and enter "/dev/sbpcd/slackwar/slackwa0/slakware"  
(most likely wrong :-( )

This results in either an "ERROR: DIRECTORY NOT FOUND" or "MOUNT ERROR".

As far as I know, my CD-ROM is detected by the sbpcd boot disk.
SBPCD: Trying to detect Soundblaster CD-ROM drive at 0x230.
SBPCD: - Drive 0: CR-563-x (0.75)
SBPCD: 1 SoundBlaster CD-ROM drive(s) at 0x0230.
SBPCD: init done.

Can someone please point me in the right direction.

1. HELP: Install Slackware 3.0 from CD using 6x Creative Labs CD-ROM

Can anyone help me,    

        I am trying to install Slackware 3.0 on my 486DX2-66 PC. However,
Linux cannot recognize my IDE CD-ROM. I have tried many types of bootdisks
with no success. I have a Creative Labs 6x IDE CD-ROM connected to an SB16
and its jumper is at master position.
Also, I have tried to force the kernel to find the CD-ROM by passing the
address and IRQ.

I'd appreciate any help.
