Hmmm. I have now gotten a couple of reports about this occuring, but I'm
not seeing it here. I havn't yet established a pattern. What type of
cdrom drive do you have? What ide chipset? I assume you have a good cable,
right? Do you know what kernel it does work with (i.e. 2.1.116?). Thanks
for your help,
