" mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/sr0 /cdrom " ( from o'reilly's debian
linux book ) but that didn't work. i did a google and read the faqs
but couldn't find anything.
any suggestions ?
Here's a quote from Christian Steigies' site.
You can download his fixed boot floppies, or just use the fix outlined
# /dev/sr (and scd) are missing in the (Amiga, Atari, Mac,
This has been fixed in boot-floppies 3.0.24.
Download the fixed rootamiga.bin, rootmac.bin, rootatari.bin, ... and
use that instead of root.bin. Alternatively you could create the
missing device files by hand. Switch to the second console (Alt-F2 on
Amiga), activate the shell (RETURN) and:
cd /dev ; mknod scd0 b 11 0 ; ln -s scd0 sr0 ; mknod scd1 b 11 1 ; ln
-s scd1 sr1
Switch back to the installer (Alt-F1 on Amiga)
