Can't locate module cdrom


I just got slackware9.1 setup, I installed it from the cd's at boot. I first encountered some problems with my nic card and found the file to fix it with, burned it to a cd and discovered my linux box won't show tar file on the cd.

I checked and my cdrom is being mounted but when I run modprobe it returns

"can't locate module cdrom"

I searched around and tried to file the libraries...

"find /lib -iname "*cdrom*"

which returned...

"/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/cdrom"

I'm pretty much stuck right here, I'm still very new to linux and just really don't know what to do now that I know the location of that module.

if you've mounted the cdrom, look in /mnt/cdrom for the tarball.

I'm looking at it right now in KDE it shows 0 items 0 files 0 directories. I thought it might just be the cd I burned, but I tried to put one of the slackware cd's in there and it shows the same thing.

you have to mount it before you can read from it.

mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

then cd /mnt/cdrom

then ls

your file should be there.
good luck.
