Description Karsten Hopp 2000-05-11 11:15:30 EDT
I have a Vaio Z600RE Notebook with USB-Floppy and a PCMCIA-CDROM.
I can boot the RedHat CD but the installer can't handle the PCMCIA CDROM.
I get a menu where I can select SCSI or 'other CDROM', but whatever I
select, an installation from my CDROM is not possible.
Comment 1 Erik Troan 2000-06-16 14:12:53 EDT
What media are you booting from?
Comment 2 Karsten Hopp 2000-06-16 14:40:39 EDT
I booted from the PCMCIA-CDROM, but after that the installer doesn't know how
to handle this drive.
Comment 3 Erik Troan 2000-07-13 21:33:42 EDT
Did you try booting from the pcmcia floppy disk? Booting from the CDROM will not
Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-07-13 21:51:31 EDT
If I understand you right, your CD-ROM drive is controlled by a
PCMCIA card.  What kind of card (brand, model number) is it?  If
it was bundled with the drive, which drive is it?
Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2000-07-14 11:27:37 EDT
Does this help when you boot?

Try booting with the command line (you dont type in 'boot:'):

boot: linux ide2=0x180, 0x386
Comment 6 Karsten Hopp 2000-07-14 17:52:55 EDT
The PCMCIA card is shipped with the notebook and the CDROM. It is labeled
CDROM interface card for PCGA-CD51, which is the name of the drive.

Booting with 'linux ide2=0x180, 0x386' prevented the 'ports already
in use' message which I saw this time. And I was able to boot and install
from CD.

Closing has Karsten got it working.
