This is the 4th week that I have tried to get Linux to recognize
my Panasonic SoundBlaster CD- ROM. I have tried to mount it using
the Soundblaster CD drivers Etc. It is for this reason that I am
still left wondering...... I have a 486 DX 33Mhz,Cirrus VL 5428
video, and 16 MB of Ram. When I start Linux from my Boot disk, it
tells me that it has reconized my CD-ROM and so I feed my Root disk.
The trouble is that when I try to run Linux Slackware from my CD-ROM
it tells me, CD Device Timed out and ignores my CD totally.
As far as I am aware this problem has been reported by lots
of people with the same CD's as myself.
Maybe it is '' About time for a correction''. Maybe Panasonic knows
a ' bit' more than We Do???
I am open to any reasonable suggestion or idea.
