[PARPORT] New RHS 5.2 bootdisk for PARIDE

Tue, 5 Jan 1999 10:53:24 -0500 (EST)

I've made an alternate bootdisk for RedHat 5.2. This disk contains
a modified installer, and drivers for 5 of most common types of
parallel port CD-ROMs.

To make room for the PARIDE drivers, the "legacy" CD-ROM drivers
(Mitsumi, Goldstar, etc.) have been removed. The menu for "other"
CD-ROMs contains 5 PARIDE options:

        Freecom Power CD
        Freecom IQ cable CD
        Kingbyte based CD-ROMs
        Microsolutions backpack CD
        Shuttle EPAT based CD-ROMs

The Freecom IQ driver supports the new battery powered
"Traveller" CD-ROM.

It may be possible to add one or two other drivers, if a demand

The bootdisk can be found at


I will put some sort of information page on the parport web pages.

Any problems with the bootdisk should be directed to me, NOT to
the RedHat support staff.
