Re: [K12OSN] booting off cd-roms -- solved!



Hi Steve and Aaron.

I had the same problem on my Dad's brand new Compaq.

The CPQ CD-ROM 52X drive would go through 2+ cds from the standard RH7.3
install then clap out.

The brand new Diamond Data 40x drive didn't have nay problems.

Go figure.

Cheers,
Bert
