Description Jason Herring 2000-02-02 05:30:13 UTC
I have a MicroSolutions backpack CDROM model 164550.  I have used this to
install on many machines over the years that didn't have a CDROM.  It
stopped working at rev 6.0, and I though I didn't worry about it then (I
could still install over the net) it is a problem now because the machine I
have isn't able to use network install (RedHat 6.1 does not recognize the
PCMCIA subsystem on the Thinkpad 240 I have).  SO, now I can't install via
net, or backpack CDROM.

As of 6.0, the backpack CDROM was shown as an option on the installation

something was supported in a previous release.  I'm not sure that this is
