Re: Official 2.2rev2 CD Kernel Panic on boot

Make sure cdrom block size is set to 512 bytes.
    There may be a block jumper on the cdrom near where
termination is set.
    Standard PeeCee block size of 2048 will not work.

L1-A == Stop-A

I just downloaded and burned 2.2rev2 and attempted to use it to boot my

cdrom: open failed
VFS: Cannot open root device 0b:00
Press L1-A to return to the boot prom

In the past I've used CD-ROM drives (Sony, and others) pulled from old
PowerPC boxes to boot Solaris and Debian without problems.  Today I have
a NEC SICD-12x hooked up on ID6.  Looking at the error above it would
appear that this CD-ROM drive may not be fully compatible for booting or
whatnot.  Can anyone confirm this?  I don't have my 2.2rev1 CD's around
to confirm if it's a bug with the rev2 CD's.

Also, what does "Press L1-A" mean?  Stop-A?  Thanks.
