I have 2 kernels in RH8: one is the stock 2.4.18-14 kernel that came with RH8 and the other,which I use now,is the 2.4.20 that I compiled myself from source.
I have 2 cd drives: one is a DVD drive the other a cdrw drive.The DVD drive is called cdrom
and the cdrw drive is called cdrom1
In the original 2.4.18-14 kernel,I could mount both drives and read data from them.However,in my new kernel,I can only read from my CDROM drive (cdrom) and not the cdrw drive (cdrom1).
When I try to mount the cdrw drive by mount /mnt/cdrom1
,I get the message that
mount: /dev/cdrom1 is not a valid block device
does anyone know why that is and what might be wrong?
