BootDisk Burner Support

I was wondering if there was a boot kernel that might support my Cd-Rw. Lite-on IT LTR 24102B, is the burner. I have just had a lot of problems installing...slackware...and I have not yet...

It might be the media...I am going to test it on Monday.

The Slackware 8.1 install iso image requires 700 MByte CDR. In addition, it uses a new boot system that many systems have problems with. Either make the boot floppy and and the system disks or take a look at smart boot manager. ( ) Smart boot manager can be installed to floppy and when booted allow a selection to boot the CDR in drive. If yu have a fat32 partiton and can boot to straight DOS then you might also want to look at "loadlin" to load the kernel and the root system on the CD.
