Not quite yet. The machine now boots, and the PATA/SATA is configured in a 
more logical way: the integrated Promise IDE controller is activated, and the 
hard disk shows up in the POST screen as an SATA device, and the CDROM shows 
up as a PATA device.

However, my kernel still does not see the CDROM drive...

I will spend some time this weekend messing around with it..

Thanks for the follow-up!
