For some reason, the Thinkpad inverts the meaning of some floppy
control lines. You always have to put "floppy=thinkpad" when you
boot. The page you get when you press F4 on the install disk lists
After installing, you can add a line `append="floppy=thinkpad"' to
your /etc/lilo.conf and rerun LILO, to have this happen automatically.

Probably /dev/scd0, for the first SCSI CD-ROM. But first the kernel
has to recognise the SCSI interface. The page you get with F5 on the
install disk says: "Future Domain TMC-8xx/950 tmc8xx=mem_base,irq" -
is this what you've got?
Check the boot messages by typing "dmesg | more", and look at the
files in /proc, to see what hardware got detected. Unfortunately I
don't have any SCSI hardware ATM.

% mount -t iso9660 -r /dev/scd0 /cdrom
% ls -la /cdrom
