(Please note, the selection of the "bootpc" component is merely a guess, since I could not identify for certain which component was considered the boot disk) In order to communicate my problem, I will first detail the procedure that I used in order to get my CD-ROM drive to work during the installation of Red Hat Linux 5.2. RH 5.2 Procedure (SUCCESS): I used the boot disk which I made from boot.img on the CD-ROM. To start the installer, I typed hdb=cdrom. When the installation came to the select CD-ROM prompt, I selected the Soundblaster/Panasonic driver, and allowed the installer to autoprobe for several minutes. After doing so, the CD-ROM drive was identified and the installation proceeded without difficulty. Recently, I acquired a copy of Red Hat Linux 6.0. I made a boot disk from the file boot.img on the CD-ROM. When I used the boot disk, I tried two different procedures to get my CD-ROM to work. Neither was successful. RH 6.0 Procedure 1 (FAILURE): I used the boot disk and simply pressed enter at the first screen to start the installer. I selected the Soundblaster/Panasonic CD-ROM driver. It autoprobed for several minutes and then said that it could not find a CD-ROM drive attached to my computer. RH 6.0 Procedure 2 (FAILURE): I used the boot disk and typed "linux hdb=cdrom" to start the installation. When I reached the CD-ROM step, the installer said that it could NOT find an ATAPI CD-ROM drive attached to my computer, and it did not allow me to procede to select the Soundblaster/Panasonic driver that I used when installing Red Hat Linux 5.2.

I also try to install RedHat 6.0 from my SCSI CD-ROM. I have made a boot floppy from 'boot.img' (DOS-command 'rawrite -f e:\image\boot.img' -d a:'). The installation-program is unable to mount my CD-ROM (0 scsi devices found), and also it is unable to set up adaper 'aha152x'. My CD-ROM is a Toshiba XM-5201. My CD-ROM works fine under my current Linux Slakware installation, and also under Windows95.

This issue is resolved in the current installer.
