Setup Help with Old CDROM


I have an old W95 system with a CR-522-B cdrom. This is an old archaic ISA cdrom - that actually works with win95.

I want to install RH8.0 - I used rawrite to create boot.img. It loads up - asks what country and keyboard I am using. Then asks where I am installing from HD or CDROM. I choose CDROM and it leaves me with one option only SCSi. I think this is because the CDROM has a controller (MKEP Panasonic CDROM Drive).

Since SCSI is the only choice - I select it. It then asks for what kind of controller. And of course the CR-522-B or MKEP does not show up. So I tried the drvblock.img floppy. No dice - not there.

I was told this CDROM requires the sbpcd driver for linux. If this is true - how do I get this driver? How do I get it on a floppy so Linux will read it and help get this CD player working?

Any help is welcomed!
