    hda: attached ide-cdrom driver, help


    I've installed slackware on my pc before; but recently everytime i try to boot from a linux cd i get this error "hda: attached ide-cdrom driver."

    I reformated my computer but the same thing keeps happening...It just freezes at that error. I want to install slackware, but i cant because of this problem.

    I've been searching a lot to find a solution, but never got an exact answer.

    Are you sure that's all it says?... Maybe if you post the entire error message someone could spot the problem...
    If you have a Hard Drive installed, your IDE-CDROM drive could not be hda (this would be your master hard drive)

    That's not true. On the last 3 motherboards I've used (including the one I have now) my CD/DVD-ROM drives were always identified as hda, and my IDE harddrive was identified at hdc.
