I had to stick in another cd drive just to get it loaded. I didn't
mount it in, just plugged it in and let it hang. I think other people
did the same thing in the past. I pulled one out of an actual apple
computer. It worked. Once installed, I pulled the drive. The ones from
Umax will just give you problems.

Hello all. I am trying to install 7.0 on the
following system: umax c500 running a 603e at 200
mhz.(but with a L2 cache slot g3 card running at 400
mhz) I have 144 mb ram, and I have added a 2 usb/2
firewire pci card.
when I try to boot off of the cd the installer seems
to work fine until it gets to the scsi cd-rom
drive(matshita cd-rom cr 506 with driver version
5.3.1) then the last three lines are scsi:0:mesh,
scsi:1 host, mesh:target 3 synchronous at 5.0 mb/s
after that last line the system hangs. I have waited
as long as 20 minutes and nothing happens. I have
tried to boot from a hfs partition but the same result
occurs. I also tried downloading the latest version
of the ppc kernel and booting from hd, but that had
the same result. any help would be greatly
