    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!

    Sincerely, JTL.
