CD-ROM Problem

I have some older versions from Trans-Ameritech CDs, but when I heard
Debian being included on the November "Boot" magazine disk I thought I'd
give it
a try.

I had installed the base Slackware 1.2.28(I think?), but was unable to
get X running, though it would come up; nothing more.

My problem is that when I get to dselect and choose CD-ROM and enter for
the block device "/dev/scd0" and return I get the following output:

scsi 0: watchdog timer fired in NCR5380_()
scsi 0: switching target 1 lun 0 return code = 7000
CD-ROM i/o error: dev 0b:00, sector 64
kernel panic: scsi_free: trying to free unused memory

My scsi card is a Trantor 128, CD-ROM is an ancient NEC Intersect 73(1X).

I've been told by an IBM mainframe guy that Linux is for "hobbyists" and
may never
run. A mechanical enginneer I know is convinced Linux is just another OS
for oblivion( and that I am rebelling against Bill Gates).

I am definitely new at this, but I am convinced that there are better OSs
than what most of the world is using; "how will they know if no one tells
them" there is more?
