is there a list of supported devices? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I'm thinking about installing Red Hat 9 on my emachines desktop computer. Is there some way I can find out in advance if Red Hat has device drivers for my modem, CD player, midi... ? At the emachines home page, they announce their preference for Windows XP, and over in support, they say good luck with device drivers. Conexant makes the modem, and they point off to another site that says they have a limited device driver... As a trial, I recently installed Red Hat 7 on an old computer I hadn't gotten around to throwing out. It installed OK ...

    I'm thinking about installing Red Hat 9 on my emachines desktop computer.
    Is there some way I can find out in advance if Red Hat has device drivers
    for my modem, CD player, midi... ?

    At the emachines home page, they announce their preference for Windows XP,
    and over in support, they say good luck with device drivers. Conexant makes
    the modem, and they point off to another site that says they have a limited
    device driver...

    As a trial, I recently installed Red Hat 7 on an old computer I hadn't
    gotten around to throwing out. It installed OK from CD, but after that it
    no longer recognized the CD player (I tried a mount command I found in Sam's
    Teach Yourself Red Hat Linux).

    Thanks,
    Bill

    On RedHat web site you should find a list of 'good' hardware.
    Google is also recommended if you have 'strange' hardware.
     

    You don't have to mound a CD if you want to listen to it.

    Default thanks

    I searched the Red Hat web site several ways looking for device drivers...
    encouraged by your message, I navigated right to the list of supported
    devices. :-)

    (I wanted to read data from a CD, not listen to one.)

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Is it an ide drive? The command to use depends on which channel/device
    it's on.

    First, be sure have a mount point for it. You've probably got a
    /mnt/cdrom mount point. If not, create it with "mkdir /mnt/cdrom". Then use:
    mount -t iso9660 /dev/<drive> /mnt/cdrom
    where <drive> is:
    hda for primary master,
    hdb for primary slave,
    hdc for secondary master,
    hdd for secondary slave
