Hello.

So I recently got myself into Xerox stuff and now trying to install Xerox Globalview for X 1.05.

I got up a SunOS 4.1.4 (Solaris 1.1.2) install on QEMU-SPARC, but now I can't figure out how to access the CD with install files. There's no /cdrom or /dev/cdrom.

Please help!

You mount CD ROMs via their Solaris device name. The device name depends on the SCSI ID of your CD ROM drive. It is usually /dev/dsk/c1t6d0 or something similar. Depending on the filesystem on the CD (it's not always ISO9660), you might have to add a slice, as in /dev/dsk/c1t6d0s0. You can get the device names by using iostat -n.
This is all from memory so it might not work 100% but should get you on the right track...
