Hello again

I'm kind of new to installing gentoo but this question is not a basic question. My computer has to drives a DVD drive master and a CD-R drive slave. when installing gentoo I knew I had to add a line to my fstab that read /dev/cdroms /cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom.

The problem is I want both drives to be set up how would I edited this file so I can use both my drives?

Thanks DOCMUR

Just add a line for each drive. eg /dev/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom and /dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1

I don't think it is even required to do manual editing of the file /etc/fstab for using CD-drives.

The entry should be there by default!! Pls post the contents of your /etc/fstab file for further help.

I seem to remeber my Gentoo fstab only came with one CD-Rom (but since my server only has 1 cd-rom drive, it wasnt an issue).

This is the fstab file from a box with 2 cdroms (well, a dvd-rom and a dvd-rw)

Yeah, every time i installed Gentoo, it only came with one entry for a cdrom, and i had to add my burner on the next line like DS2K3 has above.
