I am attempting to install Linux Release 1.1 from the Slakware
Professional CD. I have an AMD 386DX 40 PC with a Future Domain 850
SCSI host adapter and Toshiba 3401 CD-ROM drive.
During system boot I supply "ramdisk tmc8xx=0xca000,5" at the boot:
prompt. I see a message scroll by whith information about my CD-ROM
drive. When I try to mount the CD-ROM using the command
"mount -t iso9660 -r /dev/cdrom /dch" I get an error message of
something to the effect "wrong fs type, /dch busy...".
I am sure that the mount-point is valid and that iso9660 support is in
the kernel I am using. The following command causes the drive indicator
light to flash:
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/dev/null bs=2048
From what I can gather, I do not have an IRQ or mem seg conflict between
my host adapter and any other hardware. The SCSI ID is set properly.
A friend was able to get Linux running with the same host adapter/drive
combination. What gives?
