Pete,

just got the CDROM to work.... here is what I did:

modprobe ide-generic .... and low and behold in /var/log/messages:
----------------/var/log/messages/---------------------
ICH5: IDE controller at PCI slot 0000:00:1f.1
 ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:00:1f.1[A] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 185
 ICH5: chipset revision 2
 ICH5: not 100%% native mode: will probe irqs later
     ide0: BM-DMA at 0xf000-0xf007, BIOS settings: hda:DMA, hdb:pio
     ide1: BM-DMA at 0xf008-0xf00f, BIOS settings: hdc:pio, hdd:pio
 hda: PLEXTOR DVDR PX-712A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
 ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
 hda: ATAPI 40X DVD-ROM DVD-R CD-R/RW drive, 8192kB Cache, UDMA(33)
 Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20

I just noticed in my /var/log/messages file some entries that may be related 
to the non-working CDROM:
--------------------------------------------------------------

...and now it seems to work...

on a side note, I noticed the following in /var/log/messages...

----------------/var/log/messages/---------------------
Jan 21 17:34:50 basho kernel: Sony CDU-535: probing base address 340
Jan 21 17:34:58 basho kernel: Did not find a Sony CDU-535 drive

Jan 21 17:35:06 basho kernel: SJCD: Resetting: .......... reset failed, no 
drive found.
Jan 21 17:35:06 basho kernel: SJCD: Sanyo CDR-H94A cdrom driver version 1.7.
Jan 21 17:35:07 basho kernel: SJCD: Resetting: .......... reset failed, no 
drive found.
----------------------------------------------------------------

these entries showed up after modprobe pegged one of the CPUs for about 10 
seconds....

not sure how to interpret these messages... probably unrelated
