booted from installation CD, but cant detect same CD to install packages
I downloaded the two slackware 10.2 installation ISOs (their md5sums did check out) then burnt them successfully. I had no trouble booting from the first CD to begin installation, and all was going well until I had to chose the source media. I ran an auto scan for a "CD/DVD drive containing a slackware disc", and this didn't detect the CD, so then tried manually selecting cdrom hdb, and that didn't work either.
I'm finding it quite difficult to understand how the system can be running from a CD, yet be unable to find that same CD - is that as strange as it seems, or have I misunderstood?
Thanks for taking the time to read this
