have tried all 3 places to pass parameter to kernel, no success,
still no CDrom recognized.
Have checked and the entry in /etc/fstab for it is almost the same as on
only difference is called hdb on the laptop, this box is hda, but it is
not in the /dev list at all on the laptop.
It read the CD to install, can't understand why no entry. Same CD used
for install on this box.
The /dev list for this box has entries for hda, cdrom, and dvd the
laptop has none of these.
Have tried cd to /dev and mkdir cdrom - mkdir hdb and mkdir dvd
(it's a combo drive) doing something wrong,
The solution can't be far away, the CD drive works to install Ubuntu
7.04, just disappears
after install. Or do I look like being committed to an external usb writer?
Many thanks in advance, any suggestions greatfully received up to and
including the correct knot to use
to enable this *+#@ as a boat anchor/fishing sinker. :-)
