Red Hat 7.3 Installation can't see Samsung cdrom--can't continue installation
I'm trying an install of Red Hat 7.3 on a custom machine. I can boot off of the installation CD, but after initating the install (and entering language and keyboard) I'm asked what kind of cdrom I'm using (SCSI, or other CDROM). I find this strange that the cdrom is visible to the bios in order to boot, but not visible to Red Hat during the install. The cdrom is an IDE Samsung 152-G. It's an Intel 2.8 GHz with 2GB of RAM. Integrated Intel 865 board..
I've tried booting from "boot: linux dd" and using the 'oldcdrom.img' from the installation CD as a driver disk. It appears that the cdrom becomes visible, but then it tells me to insert the Red Hat Installation CD...it's already in there.
I've also tried the "boot: linux hdc=cdrom" but that just leads to a kernel panic. (I've also tried hda, hdb, hdd, just in case--all give the same result.)
Has anyone seen this before? Are there compatability issues of which I'm unaware?
