CDROM

Tejas:
Clapped out computer, HD gone (hda), no Bios support for USB boot, run out of CD-R, 64 MB ram. Installed TC using floppy and usb stick. Now can't find /dev/cdrom. Mount tool did not detect cd. Tried /dev/hdb unsuccessfully, /dev/disk also. Anyone know 'mknod' command to create /dev/cdrom? Would like to use cd's containing graphics.

It will be /dev/sr0.  Try V4.4rc3, as it has drivers for older ide interfaces.

/dev/sr0 did not work. Will give V4.4rc3 a shot, if by that you mean a Tiny Core version. Is it in a special repository?

Hi Tejas
You can find it here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/4.x/x86/release_candidates/

Hi Rich

Thanks for the interest. V4.4rc3 is also a no go Also noticed TC cannot mount a reiserfs filesystem on USB. However have DSL loaded from CD on IDE controller and drive is /dev/scd0 under DSL.
