(Mac system profiler says it is on ATA1, ID 0).Have you tried mounting the CD-ROM before you run the setup script, when you're still at the prompt? I'm presuming it's on /dev/hdc.
Yep, #mount /dev/hdc -t iso9660 -r /mntfails with "no medium", regardless of what CD is in the drive, the drive never even spins up.
I checked dmesg and the drive is there and correctly identified.
If you can mount the CD-ROM you're good to go - instead of installing "from CD-ROM", just install from the directory where you mounted the CD-ROM/slackware. If for whatever reason you cannot, you could always make two partitions, make one of them FAT, boot into Mac OS, copy the <CDROM>/slackware directory from the CD-ROM onto it, then reboot into the installer, mount the FAT partition and install from there.
Well, I guess I could, this is not getting easier. I wish I had a better Unix box handy.
