    The problem, at least in latter 2.3 kernels, appears to be that you
    can't have both ide cdrom support and ide-scsi support. Do you have
    both types of support built into the kernel? If so, I've found two
    work-arounds, depending on your preferences.

    The first work-around is to disable ide cdrom support entirely.
    Disabling that support will allow use of the ide-scsi CDRW drive. The
    regular ATAPI IDE CDROM drive will appear as a device on the faux scsi
    chain. This is the option I eventually chose.

    The second work-around is to build ide cdrom support and ide-scsi
    support both as modular. You will end up adding the appropriate modules
    and removing the ones you don't want as needed.
