I am attempting to put Suse linux  on my old 486 (AST with an overdrive
chip). The CD-ROM, an old one, a Matsushita/Panasonicis giving me

When I install the module from the floppy, it asks for a specific set of
parameters. "sbpcd=0x230,1" is the example given.

    Now the question, what are these specifically ? I tried the IO port
and IRQ # in combinations to no luck. where can I find out what they
are, just point me in the right direction and I can figure it out...

                                                thanks, howie smith
