    I'll try that... I just have to reinstall Slack all over again though, I only selected option a and ap during install, so no kernel source or tools.

    Hm , you said that before, and I let it pass through... I forgot to say that may have packages at the lib sections needed to do lots of things... you may reinstall it with it...

    Why re-install? You can always install any packages you want from either the cdrom or internet..

    whatever..

    excuse me?

    maybe "how strange" will suit you.

    now please don't derail this thread again by saying something completely irrelevent such as 'get a life'

    you don't know me, merely took offence to two words I said


    now lets get back to slacking eh?

    Just because I can't get access to the Slack CD (the reason why I posted here in the first place) and I don't have a working internet connection on this computer. It's connecting through a wireless USB adapter that isn't supported out of the box and needs drivers that I haven't been able to get working under Slack yet.

    I think I might have found out what the problem is, the thing is that I had to leave to come to school. I reinstalled 10.1, because it has always mounted CDs, but this time I only installed a and ap. I got mount the drive "mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom" (keep in mind /dev/cdrom is linked to /dev/hdc) and it gave me an error saying that there's no device there and that if I had the ide-scsi module loaded (which I did) it might be found under either sda or sr0. I tried both, and I found out that the CD drive was in /dev/sr0 and was able to mount it. This was all in 10.1, and for some reason I never got that message in 10.2. So when I get home later tonight, I'm going to reinstall 10.2 and try mounting the drive from /dev/sr0 instead of /dev/hdc.
