DVD Drive detection problem

I haven't installed slackware in a while :-)

One piece of information that might be useful to know is that the DVD in
this machine is an IDE drive. Other than that, I am at a loss. You might
ask on the Slackware mailing list.

You might also try doing a network install (If slackware has a net
install, IIRC, it does).

  If each of us have one object, and we exchange them,
     then each of us still has one object.
  If each of us have one idea,   and we exchange them,
     then each of us now has two ideas.
