Version: 2.2.15-2000-06-07
Severity: wishlist

/etc/fstab contains /dev/cdrom line,
but I can't find /dev/cdrom file after a normal installation.
I had to creata a symbolic file by myself.
I wish the installer did it.

Indeed, it's a pretty standard ATAPI CD-ROM.

Yes -- dbootstrap should be making code for symlinking /dev/hdc ->
/dev/cdrom, but (IIRC) that code is only activated if you actually
install via CD-ROM.

Kinda wierd but that's the way it works.  You can understand why I

Closing this bug, since the boot-floppies is for *installation* only
-- it's purpose is not to configure all the hardware, nor is it
feasible for boot-floppies to accomplish this goal.
