CD Burning


Using X-CD-Roast under RedHat 8.0.

I have a CDrom and a CDrw. The CDrom in on an IDE adapter and the CDrw is on the IDE port on the motherboard.

I am using GRUB as the boot loader and dual booting with Windows XP Pro.

I have two hard drives, one on the MB and one on the adapter.

I can get X-CD-Roast to recognize both CD's if I edit /etc/modules.conf and /boot/grub/grub.conf as follows:

options ide-cd ignore='hde hdd'

kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=/dev/hda6 hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi

But when I do this I cannot boot to Windows. The error says something like, "Cannot mount partition. kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=/dev/hda6 hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Ted.

go to the command prompt of grub by typing c
in there type find /msdos.sys
or find /io.sys
does it return something?

Not Found

Okay, msdos.sys and io.sys return the same error, "File Not Found."

Thanks,
Ted.

mooreted is your windows partition ntfs?
check your windows partition location from
fdisk /dev/hda
now edit your grub.conf or menu.lst in your /boot/grub folder
Make sure that the correct partition boots.
Maybe it will work!
Finally I thought that you have already configured CD burning and it works.
