I have buyed an freecom CDRW. On the carton of the freecom CDRW stands that
it is an "freecom portable CDRW".
I also have buyed an freecom parallel port cable. With this cable i have
buyed an floppy disk with drivers for dos, win3.11, win95, win98 and winNT.
I have connected the freecom CDRW to the parallel port of my pc.
At next I have installed msdos 6.2 on the first hard disk of my pc and suse
Linux 6.3 on the second hard disk of my pc.
Now I have installed the dos driver for my freecom CDRW. But this driver
says, that my freecom CDRW is an "POWER-CD FREECOM Power CD Treiber".
I dont understand this. The carton say it is an "FREECOM PORTABLE CDRW", but
the driver say it is an "FREECOM POWER CDRW".
At next i have looked at the internet to find more informations about the
difference of an freecom power or portable cdrw, but i havent find something.
But i have found somthing about to run the "FREECOM POWER CDRW" with Linux
Now i have started my suse linux with lilo and i have made the following as
By the last command i always get some error messages (the module could not
find any cd drive).
Now i also have looked at the internet and i have found the following hompage
On this webpage stands that i must run dos with the freecom driver for the
power cdrw and at next i must boot my linux with loadlin (initialize with
POWER-CD.SYS in DOS, then boot Linux with LOADLIN).
Now i want to test this. But now my question.
Is this the only way? Or could i make the same without dos?
I hope you can help me and please write back.
