Has anyone had success with the alpha CDR-260 driver on sunsite?  I
tried patching and compiling on both 1.0.9 and 1.1.18 sources
(slackware) and while both patched and compiled, neither could accesss
the CD.  I tried a cat /dev/idecd (which I created according to the
insructions) and it gave me an I/O error.

If anyone has made this work, please mail me.  (Include kernal
version).  I'll summarize if there is interest.



IBM stands for "Inferior But Marketable"


1. mount NEC CDR-260 (IDE CD-ROM) drive

I install a CD-ROM of linux into my computer using CD-ROM drive.
My system is Gateway 2000 P5-60 with NEC CDR-260(IDE CD-ROM) drive.
After repartitioning my hard disk drive, I could boot linux O.S.
using the boot144. And then due to root14 I could login into the root accout.
As a root, I made and formated root, swap(82), /usr partitions.
Slackware was so straightforward that I followed the directions for
setup (addswap, source, target, disksets, install).
My problem was to decide the source of installation.
There was no option for my CD-ROM drive type,  NEC CDR-260(IDE CD-ROM) drive.
So I could not mount the CD-ROM drive on some directory of the filesystem.
Would please tell me how I can handle this problem?
Thank you very much.
