I'm using Julian Reschke's SPIN.XFS, which uses MetaDOS. The
SPIN-distribution contains everything you need, at least if your
CD-Rom is a SCSI. If you have an IDE I'd recommend CD-Tools.

The only (occasional) problem I have with Spin is that sometimes when
I insert a CD-Rom, the driver recognises it as an audio-disk of some
kind, and the directory only contains a TRACK1.DAT-file. If this
happens I have to reboot :-( I don't know if this is a problem with
the Afterburner or a bug in Spin.
