Re: Bantam backpack on Toshiba T4500C

I can now mount my Bantam Backpack cd from my Toshiba T4500C laptop.
Thanks to George Sollish and www.torqe.net for their help.

What worked was to load modules paride, bpck, and pcd and *then* to
use the script at www.torqe.net to make the appropriate devices under

It seems completely implausible that a new user would go to these
lengths --- indeed RedHat 5.1 installation asks if your CD is local,
then load a module it calls bpcd and attaches it to /dev/hdd.  Is this
hardware so non-standard that Debian doesn't expect neophytes to be
installing from it?
