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.
