I share a Unix CD-Rom with Win95 using AFPS by defining it as a
filesystem and mounting it.  It is then as accessible as any Unix
directory.  Works great.

mount the CD and then have AFPS, VisionFS, samba, etc... share that directory
over the network.

: How do you or can you export a cdrom for use on a network in 5.0.4

You should be able to do the following:

   1) create a directory to mount the CD onto (/cdrom comes to mind)
   2) mount -r /dev/cd0 /cdrom  (assumes the first cdrom drive)
   3) edit /etc/exports and add a line that contains:

        /cdrom

   4) as root run the 'exportfs -a' command to re-export all NFS
      filesystems

On reboots, /cdrom will be exported, but you will have to manually
mount the /dev/cd0 onto /cdrom (or put it in a script).

If you don't have NFS enabled, then you would have to do that first.

1. Problem when exporting CDROM via NFS

Hello all out there!

I want to export CDROMS via NFS to other UNIX boxes like HP-UX and Solaris and
found out that LINUX is best to recognize many different CDROM formats.

Everything works fine and very fast ...

But, changing CDROMs is a bit complicated:

  First, unmounting via NFS.
  Second, try to unmount on Linux: Message "device is busy" appears.
    So, stopping rpc.nfsd, unmounting and restarting rpc.nfsd is required.

Is this a feature or a bug? Do i miss something ?

I run LINUX 1.2.9 with SCSI disk and SCSI CDROM.

Many thanks in advance!
