Subjectfdisk -l finds CD-ROM
I don't know whether this is a kernel issue; anyway:
When I start "fdisk -l" my CD-ROM drive spins up and then fdisk reports
the same geometry for /dev/hdd (CD) as for /dev/hda (disk), but no
partition table. Is the CD-ROM drive broken, the kernel, or fdisk?

From hdparm -i /dev/hdd I get:

Model=TOSHIBA CD-ROM XM-5602B, FwRev=1796, SerialNo=61517072
Config={ SpinMotCtl Removable DTR<=5Mbs DTR >10Mbs nonMagnetic }
RawCHS=0/0/0, TrkSize=0, SectSize=0, ECCbytes=0
BuffType=0(?), BuffSize=256kB, MaxMultSect=0

The kernel (2.0.29) recognizes the drive as
<4>hdd: TOSHIBA CD-ROM XM-5602B, ATAPI CDROM drive
