    The NEC CDR-C251 (4x4) works just fine under Linux. I am the ide cdrom
    maintainer for Linux, and I have one. In fact, if you are using the
    2.1.x kernels, you will see this on bootup:

    Partition check:
    hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4 < hda5 >
    hdc: hdc1 hdc2
    hdd: ATAPI CDROM changer with 4 slots

    There is currently no real way to mount all 4 slots on different
    directories. You will need to unmount the drive, change slots, and then
    remount the drive. Sorry. You are welcome to try and implement this
    featture if you want. To change slots, you can use the program appended
    to the end of /usr/src/linux/Documentation/cdrom/ide-cd (you will need
    to compile it yourself).
