i cannot get windows 98se to recognize the dvd drive. i have tried to change the 98.sh file to what was in a post to fix this prob:

#!/bin/bash
echo Loading Windows Me... -m.e
sudo /mnt/fatx/f/qemu/qemu -L /mnt/fatx/f/qemu/ -m 24 hda /mnt/fatx/f/win98.img -cdrom /dev/cdrom -enable-audio -full-screen

but then windows wouldn't even launch from xdsl. then i realized im a retard (or just a noob) and that the 98.sh file wasn't pointing to the right files so i changed it to this:


#!/bin/bash
echo Loading Windows 98... -m.e
sudo /cdrom/qemu/qemu -L /cdrom/qemu/ -m 24 -hda /cdrom/win98.img
-cdrom /dev/cdrom -enable-audio -full-screen

but it still didn't launch windows and said something about -cdrom not a valid command. do i need to have linux recognize the dvd drive first and how do i do that (sorry like i said I'm a linux noob)? or am i doing something else wrong?

#!/bin/bash
echo Loading Windows 98... -m.e
sudo /cdrom/qemu/qemu -L /cdrom/qemu/ -m 24 -hda /cdrom/win98.img -hdb /dev/hdb -enable-audio -full-screen

you have to mount ur /cdrom/ first, and a cd must be inserted
use the file explorer program to mount it, right click on cdrom, then go to mount
