I have an optical disk drive (Pinnacle Micro). I don't know
a lot about it, except that it is a SCSI device. I've been
trying to copy information from the 1.2 GB optical disks
that we have in my lab, but quite a number of them cannot
be read on a Windows 2000 machine, which makes me suspect
that there is not a FAT, VFAT, or NTFS type file system.
Is it possible that this device could
have been connected to an HP Apollo machine which was
If yes, what kind of filesystem type would it have
used, and is that filesystem supported by a NetBSD installation
on an HP425t? (I have 1.53 or 1.6 installed on one right now).
If not NetBSD, then any other OS? I have access to machines
running Linux (Sparc and i386) and I could install OpenBSD
on the hp425t (I think) or NetBSD on an i386.
Any information about this situation would be helpful.
