i am using uml-patch-2.4.18-22 and i have a problem.
i have been looking at the docs but i could not find
how to map a iso image as a cdrom drive.
well, i can use ubd0=/foo/bar/image.iso but it
appears like a hard drive in devfs: /dev/discs/disc0.
it is possible to map it to /dev/cdroms/cdrom0?
i know that uml cant know that such file is an iso
image so it has to map it as a cdrom :-)
so... what can i do?
ohh, i am not suscribed to this list,
so... can you cc to my email?

yes... is a live cd, i has a configuration program that need to
use the cdrom drive and it try to detect ide or scsi drives
searching in /dev/cdroms. is a little silly, but that is how it works=
