I found your message about the Mitsumi cd-rom player which is rather old message. I came across the same problem while installing Debian 2.1 (present version is 3.0, the old one is still around) and I didn't see a solution to the problem.

I will try to answer what I 'Think' you are asking. /dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 user,noauto,ro,conv=binary 0 0 This mounts my cdrom, not on bootup, when I do mount /cdrom. I have made a dir in / called /cdrom. (mkdir /cdrom). To have it mount at bootup just remove the noauto from the above example. Now I haven't done the mcd thingy in years so this might be a bit off. make a link from /dev/cdrom to /dev/mcd. ls -s /dev/cdrom /dev/mcd. Now you just refer to /dev/cdrom and forget about mcd. The above confused me because I _think_ you are saying that the CD is seen by the kernel. If not, then you have to redo the kernel config and select it. If I am out in left field, sorry. Let me know if I misunderstood something. HTH Wayne WA1BBB -- What this country needs is a good five cent microcomputer. _______________________________________________________ Wayne T.
