Melissa rebooted recently  (didn't need to; sawfish had borked out on her).

Checking 'dmesg', I see:

  Kernel command line: auto BOOT_IMAGE=newlinux ro root=301
    BOOT_FILE=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.10 hdc=ide-scsi
  ide_setup: hdc=ide-scsi
  PIIX4: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
      ide0: BM-DMA at 0x1000-0x1007, BIOS settings: hda:DMA, hdb:pio
      ide1: BM-DMA at 0x1008-0x100f, BIOS settings: hdc:DMA, hdd:pio
  hdc: CR-2801TE, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

followed later by over a hundred of these!

  hdc: driver not present
