Confirmed: upgraded my second and third machine from Roswell to Enigma; all suffer the same problem. Made a fresh install on a notebook with CD-RW: reading from CDROM works without effort.

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable. Some information on which option may be right for you is available at http://www.redhat.com/rhel/migrate/redhatlinux/. Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks. Please check if this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release. If so, please change the product and version to match, and check the box indicating that the requested information has been provided. Note that any bug still open against Red Hat Linux on will be closed as 'CANTFIX' on September 30, 2006. Thanks again for your help.

Thanks Bill, for your effort to clean up old reports. No doubt, first years down the road this is just formal. There was an error in the upgrade of those old versions. Mistakes happen and may happen all the time; but we - you - are supposed to learn the lesson. Some time later, I had plenty of breakage from 8.0 to 9.0. Too much to endure, debug or tolerate. Alas, lesson not learnt. Since then I switched to Debian stable and don't look back. Thanks to those years that Redhat accommodated my needs for a Linux-based OS ! Uwe
