    Giving Slackware Another Go...


    So once again I'm trying to give Slackware 10.2 another go around. So far things have been much better, except for the fact that my CD/Burner is not recognized. I'm using the default 2.4.31 kernel. I would assume that is part of the problem, but any insight from seasoned slack pros would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    you'll be needing the ide-scsi module loaded for cd burning support

    although

    I'd upgrade to kernel 2.6 and use the IDE-CD module as it blows away ide-scsi

    depends on what bootloader you are using. In grub for example, when you go to menu.lst or grub.conf, under the entry for slackware there will be a list of boot options. Try appending "hdc=ide-scsi" (assuming your drive is hdc).
