Question Samsung SCR-3232 and slackware

ok I'v been trying to get one of my 2 samsung SCR-3232's to mount under the slackware installer, I'v tryed both the bare.i and old_cd.i to get it work, passing rawdisk hdb/hdc=cdrom to the kernel, (depending on its location) also tried with it as a slave and master on both ide channels, with both of my drives. I can boot up with the slackware cd tho. I'v even tried an old 12x cd-rom I had laying around, nothing.

am I doing somthing wrong? or not passing somthing to the installer kernel?

I've done all of the above, I've even tried
# hdparm -d0 /dev/hdc
as someone suggested worked with the 3231's, but no joy.

It's infuriating because it boots off the damn thing, it just won't read it come set-up time.

my friend is experiencing the same issue with Slackware 10 and the Samsung SCR-3232. It boots fine, the setup runs, partitions are created etc. until the point, where setup asks for the installation media location (choosing local CD-ROM). The CD drive light even blinks in response, but it just keeps "Scanning..." without result.

Have you guys found a solution? Would the boot disks make a difference? I wonder whether this is a Slackware issue or something weird about the CD drive.

I've had this problem with every linux distro I've tried. I recommend copying the entire cd to a slackware directory on a flash drive. When it asks for install media, select HD Partition and type in /dev/sda1, or whatever your flash drive is, then at the slackware dir prompt, just type slackware/slackware.

Usually, I'd recommend trying other kernels ... not sure if this will help here, since this has been the case with other distros as well.
