    I gave up on trying to install RH on my old Compaq via the backback, but
    have succeeded in installing RH 7.1 on a IBM thinkpad via said backpack
    cd-rewriter. So far, so good. Now the cd-rom/rewriter cannot be found
    upon booting. Can anyone tell me how I can install via the backpack and
    now the newly installed OS cannot see the backpack? Maybe something on
    the boot install disc that is missing on the installed OS???

    Also, could someone help me get the cd-rom/rewriter working?

    I have included dmesg (I hope it helps)

    Thank you,
