I am trying to install Debian GNU/Linux on a Compaq Contura 400 with
20MB RAM, using a Backpack CD-ROM Model 164550. I use a rescue.bin and
a root.bin 1.44M diskette to start the installation, and load the
drivers using 4 floppies (driver1.bin, driver2.bin etc.). Now, the
problem is: I install the following modules/drivers:
and I can then install the base system from a CD-ROM (official Debian
CD's). When I am finished with the base configurations and reboot the
system, continue with the configuration and get to Apt Configuration, I
choose cdrom as the method atp should use to access the Debian archive
on CD-ROM`s. But when I do that, I get the message that "This program
was unable to auto-detect a CD ROM drive ....Enter the device file to
use to access your CD ROM....."
Whatever I try to do from this point, it will not recognize the CD
drive any more. And if I go out of the Apt/dselect, I am unable to
mount the CD Drive.
How can I get my system to recognize the CD drive?
Thanks for your help!
