CD-ROM, ZIP, FD0 errors


While booting the kernel i get many errors regarding the cd-rom, zip drive, and floppy although all these devices work perfectly. Onlt at shutting down i have to umount the zip drive first or else the shutdown waits at "unmounting local filesystems" for like 3 minutes and then continues giving an error about scsi sda device timeout.

Here are the errors i get.. Its pretty long but plz help me if u know what could be wrong.. I remind you again that thsese devices work perfectly...

I made /etc/rc.d/rc.cdrom not executable so cd rom doesnt mount omn startup but i still get these errors...

This is in Slack 8.0

Thanks for any help in advance!

Try adding the noauto option to those devices in /etc/fstab.... It looks to me like you are trying to mount a bunch of things with removable media when there is no media in them. Unfortunetly mount doesn't work that way, you can only mount a device with removable media when the media is installed, and you must unmount it before the media is removed. If you want your stuff to automount when media is inserted and removed check out the automount how-to at www.linuxdoc.org.

Thanks again jtshaw!
Yeah i know about mounting devices and all, im not that if a newbie! but the problem is that there is a noauto entry in /etc/fstab and this still happens. I also changed permisssions in /etc/rc.d/rc.cdrom so the cd rom doesnt mount at startup but this still happens... There must be another script that attempts to mount the devices. I think this started happening after i compiled and installed wine. Could wine make a startup script that would mount all devices?

Thanks for any help
