It's not an -O3 problem, it's one with your .config... ;)


When you have that set, ide-scsi never gets a chance to see the CD-ROM
drive as the native IDE driver grabs it first. Everything else relevant
in the IDE and SCSI sections seem fine to my untrained eye... ;) So
either change that to N, or at boot time you can pass "hdb=scsi" as one
of the parameters and avoid recompiling.
