    Default cd-rom


    Whenever prompted for a disk, my system (LM 9.2) always ejects the bottom cd drive. I would like it to use the top cd drive. Rather then physically unplugging and swapping them, is there a way to set which cd drive is the default?

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    You could change this in /etc/fstab. If that entry is /dev/cdrom (wich usually points to a device file) change that to eg /dev/hdc (note that /dev/hdc might not be your top cdrom, try looking through "dmesg" to see what your cdrom's are listed as).

    Good luck
