When I first booted up with the new board, an error involving the CD drives occurred. With the help of the manufacturer's help line, I solved the problem from the BIOS screen.
Since then, although I am able to boot to Mandriva, the following error message appears:
Mounting local file system: mount: special device /dev/hda does not exist
The lines of /etc/fstab involving CD drives (the machine has two, a CD-ROM and a CD-RW) are
/dev/hda /mnt/cdrom iso9660 defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom3 auto umask=0022,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,sync, codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0
Would anyone be able to give me a pointer as to how to make Mandriva happy with /dev/hda again?
