These kernel modules are not for your drive, they're for old
interfaces that a drive may be attached to. If your drive is simply
attached to the IDE on your mainboard as is usually the case, then
you need none of the above modules, but you do need the other CD
related drivers, and ide-scsi and related modules if you want to
burn CDs as well as read them.
If your CD drive is connected to an old soundcard or other
"multimedia" card, you should find out its type and select the
appropriate driver from the list.
