    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,
