    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
