throwing them away and offered the students to take one home if they wanted.
When we first fired the computer up the computer went through the bios start-up
but showed a message "no operating system". After fiddling around for about a day
we found the jumper on the hard drive was not in the right spot. I had some DOS
6.2 floppy disks and loaded DOS on the hard drive. Now, here is where I am stuck.
The CD drive was connected to the primary IDE connection in conjunction with the
hard drive. This threw up a red flag for me as there was no cable from the CD drive to the secondary IDE drive connection. I took a ribbon cable from another
old computer that I have and connected the CD drive to the secondary IDE. When
I fired up the computer it tells me "Interface board or cd drive is not ready, Insure that drive cables correctly attached". I believe the interface board could be defective as I have the cables attaches correctly and it originally connected to the primary IDE when we first opened it up. I want to know if the cd-drive can be hooked to the primary IDE and used as a slave to the hard drive? If so, how can I set it up?
The computer is a "Digital PC3100". It has a Pentium w/MMX 200mhz CPU w/32m
of RAM. The CD drive is a Teac CD-540E.
