Perhaps the idecd is installed into the kernel and is not a module.
You can check your kernel configuration in /boot/version/config.
That will tell what is configured as a module(=m) and what is
compiled directly into the kernel(=y).So check for the following:
IF you previously loaded ide-scsi and sg modules then they are ok.
If IDECD is not a module then that causes the modprobe failed messages.
So you can remove the 2 lines in /etc/modutils/aliases that refer
to ide-cd. But now you must tell the kernel to use scsi before ide by
adding a line to /etc/lilo.conf : append="hdc=ide-scsi" and run lilo.
