I wasn't sure if Pat had finally given up on 2.4 kernels as his default.
To resolve this issue, try a current 2.6 kernel.

do u have 2 cd/dvd drives?
we already have enough threads on that..
so while installation u didnt install lilo ?
i think new 2.4 kernels dont need scsi emulation.. before jumping into 2.6 resolve it here and go and learn 2.6 compilation
regards

Hi,

The current 2.4.31 default kernel for Slackware 10.2 does use scsi emulation. The testing 2.6 kernel uses ide-cd.

I agree about resolving the problem for the 2.4 before rushing off to the 2.6 but at times the 2.6 kernel will solve some open issues.

HTH!

yes tht is true, but since he is a newb, it is better to get a working linux, before struggling to compile kernel(if u use kernel shipped with slack -no struggling)

c for me i had a cd writter first(only one drive), while typing cdrecord -scanbus was showing errors, and i posted a thread and i got answer and the problem is resolved thus i came to know
some parameters can be put into kernel from lilo or any boot loader(scsi emulation) after tht i couldn't read any cd, so i need to invoke the reader in my device i need to create symlink etc.(play in /dev/ drive) so learned much.
tehn i found tht most of other distro defaultly give scsi emulation in "lilo or grub "
