newbi needs help with CD-ROM
Date: Sat, 13 Mar 2004 16:16:21 -0500
I just installed Red Hat Linux on an old Win95 machine, left it as
dual boot. The CD-ROM doesn't respond in Linux. It's OK in Win95. In
Linux, when I press the button on the CD-ROM, it blinks a few times,
but doesn't open. Funny., I installed Linux from the CD, nut to get it
out when install was done, I had to boot in Windows and eject it.
Any ideas on how to get it working?
