Re: Genera 8.1 CD-ROM Problem

I am attempting to do an initial CD-ROM installation of Genera 8.1 on our
XL400. After installing the CD-ROM hardware (a Sun CD-ROM drive), I
reset the XL400 and followed the instructions to load the FEP kernal from the
XL bootstrap tape. The SCSI ID of the CD-ROM drive was 4. After powering up
the CD-ROM drive and inserting the CD-ROM, I did a disk restore:
I know that sun cd-roms and apple cd-roms require different drivers because
they have different command sets. Likely an XL400 cannot address a sun
cd-rom drive. On the other hand, I use one from my UXL400 without problems
because the CD-Rom is mounted on a sun, and the UX uses nfs to access it. If
you XL400 is on a network, possibly you could do the same.
