: Folks,

: I've brought BSD 2.1.7 version and wanted to install it on my PC.
: But this version didn't catch my ATAPI CDROM(NEC x16),I couldn't
: install it.
: Now I know BSD 2.2.2 improved a lot,but I don't know whether
: it supports my CDROM.
: Does anyone know 2.2.2 version whether supports NEC x16 ATAPI CD-ROM?

Well I dont know if there are any differences between atapi cdrom drives.

But I performed a successful floppyless install of 2.2.2 with an Atapi
cdrom.  The BIOS even booted from the CD.  The most painless installation
ever.

   I had a similar experience.  ATAPI (noname) cdrom on Controller 2, Master.
IDE drive on Controller 1... scsi drives on Adaptec card...  

   It worked flawlessly.. in fact, when I had a problem with the boot-sector
of the BSD drive, it decided to start booting from the cdrom...
   Surprised the heck out of me... *grin* I didn't expect it to do that. =P
