I am trying to configure FreeBSD 2.28 to recognise my Samsung IDE CD ROM so
that I can complete my installation of copying /bin files etc from above CD
set to to my hard drive. Note: my CD set of version 3.1 will not work when I
try D:\install (I get this from the DOS 6.2 "fbsdboot.exe -D kernel Bad
command or file name" so I am forced to use my earlier version which came
with "The Complete FreeBSD" book.
I have searched previous postings on the IDE CD ROM problem and I have found
"mount -t cd9660 /dev/wcd0c /cdrom" is the required command line. The
question I want to ask the group is:
(i) Where exactly do I use this instruction?
My feeling is that this is part of the FreeBSD DiskLabel Editor settings,
the book touches on this with mounting of a disk drive and second CD ROM but
as a real newbie I dont understand where exactly I should enter this command
line, and in what file partition etc? My set up with 8megs RAM 486 at this
Part Mount Size Newfs
wd0sa / 20MB UFS Y
wd0s1b swap 64MB SWAP
wd0s1e /usr 118MB UFS Y
Any help would much appreciated.
