9.0 and 9.1 and IBM xSeries
I am currently trying to install Slackware 9.1 onto an
IBM xSeries 340 box. The hard drive is on an Adaptec
78xx adapter and the floppy/CDROM are plugged into the
on board IDE which is a ServerWorks chipset.
The CDROM boots fine and i can boot with either the
adaptec.s or xfs.s kernels and see my SCSI devices, but
when i get to the "SOURCE" portion of the Slackware
setup, my CDROM device (/dev/hda) is not recognized.
This happens even if i boot up with bare.i.
I have tried manually mounting the disk, passing
hda=cdrom at boot time and few other tricks but nothing
seems to work.
Anyone got any clues?
