I am trying to install the Slackware version 2.0 off of CD-ROM. When I try
to boot using the bootdisk made using \bootdsk0\scsi I get the
response below. It looks like Linux is recognizing the scsi interface and
the CD-ROM but the system just hangs ( with drive A still spinning ).
I am using the MediaVision MV-1000 PAS-16 sound card with SCSI interface to
the CDR-H93MV CD-ROM ( does anybody know who really makes the CD-ROM? )
scsi0: at 0x388 irq 10 options CAN_QUEUE=32 CMD_PER_LUN=2 release=1
generic options AUTOPROBE_IRQ AUTOSENSE PSEUDO DMA generic release=4
scsi0: PRO AudioSpectrum - 16 SCSI
scsi: 1 hosts.
Vendor: MEDIAVIS Model: CDR-H93MV Rev 1.32
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Detected scsi CD-ROM sr0 at scsi0, id 1, lun 0
scsi0: resetting for second half of retries <---- here is where it hangs!
I have seen some other posts that reference the boot command:
linux max_scsi_luns=1 pas16=0x388,255
Will this help in my case? Thanks in advance for any help on this problem!
