Description ryouga12 1999-12-21 08:21:27 UTC
I have a Sony DVD-ROM DDU220E installed on my system.  I have used it in
the past to install from Red Hat 6.1.  I had no troubles the first time I
booted up linux.  However, the second time I booted up linux, the kudzu
program ran and removed the DDU220E from my configuration.  I then
attempted to reinstall the 6.1 distribution using this at the boot prompt:

linux hdc=cdrom

From there, the cdrom was detected like a normal ATAPI CDROM device.  This
resulted in recompiling the kernel, usually involving about 129 Megabytes
or packages (I forget which it was).  After recompiling, I rebooted linux
and the cdrom worked.  But after shutting down linux and rebooting, I used
lilo to boot to linux and Win98 (so sue me).  When I attempted to boot to
linux, I get unkown atapi device with kudzu running, telling me its
removing the DDU220E from my system.  I have even considering putting this
in lilo.conf:

append="hdb=noprobe hdc=cdrom" (I'm not sure if it's quotation marks or
single apostrophe's in the command line here.)

But each time I recompiled using the installation method, I get the cdrom
drive working just fine, it's just trying to keep the cdrom in the
configuration file thats getting to me.

Choose 'keep the existing configuration' and you
should be OK.

What does the entry for the drive in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
look like?

closed, lack of input.
