many thanks for your response.

I can boot only from floppy drive, because without driver RH9.0 doesn't
recognize SCSI controller on DELL PC.

I mean, that CDROM drive isn't still working. System was recognized only
ADAPTEC SCSI controller, but no SCSI CDROM drive. I supposed, that system
found CDROM drive automatically. 

Could you give some direction for this issue ?

Thank you very much.

First the basics.  Can you boot off CD?  I mean, is the cdrom drive
actually working?

If it is working, which SCSI OR IDE controller is it plugged in to?
