    Hello,

    I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask or not...

    I have downloaded 0.7.1 from Henrys site and I have everything
    working except for the CDROM. I can't seem to get the correct
    syntax in the configuration file to get it to work.

    I am using the standard fedora 5 image expanded to 8gb.

    I thought this line should work but it does not seem too...
    cobd4=\Device\Cdrom0\

    Anybody have the correct line I should use ?

    thx

    HD

      Yes, should it do. Try without ending slash:
        cobd4=\Device\Cdrom0
      And you should shure, that cobd number 4 is not used by any others in your config file.

      An other way is
        hdc=\Device\Cdrom0
      and then mount it with
        mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/hdc /cdrom

      This have some troubble with changing the CD after umount (windows give an error), while coLinux holds open the device.

      The better way for me was cofs:
        cofs2=\Device\Cdrom0
      The mount command:
        mount -t cofs -o ro cofs2 /cdrom
