Smile CDROM interface COR334 SONY CDU33A-C3 Information

Hi guys !

I'm just gutting an old 486 Box to rebuild as a
Linux prototyping platform for configuring
HDDs for an old 486 (CDROM & Network Less)

Yes I know I could spend AU$12 and put in
an IDE CDROM. But I like a challenge !

Is there any compatibility information available for
Red Hat Linux 5.2 (Yes 5.2 ) for the following
hardware ? :

CD-ROM controller COR334

ISA 8-Bit card. Approx 4x4 Inches
1x 34 pin Header (To CDROM)
1x 4 pin Audio header (To CDROM)
1x o/p audio jack
4x Headers with jumpers (Top RHS)
JP1 -x--
JP2 x---
JP3 x---
JP4 ----
Chip count: 7 ICs. Including a 24 Pin PAL.

1x Attached CDROM

CD-ROM CDU33A-C3 Sony Branded Creative
2 Speed. Appears to be Non IDE
(At one time these were shipped with SB cards
using the Creative SB interface)

Questions :

Anyone seen a manual for the controller card
or config information for the CDROM?

Anyone know if it was successfully setup under
Red Hat 5.2 ?

Best regards
