You must have misunderstood me. _Don't_ select all modules, just select
the general ide modules (ide-generic, ide-cd) instead and check if your

what it is.

In that case, please send us the output of 'lspci' and 'lspci -n' so we
can see what kind of hardware is in the machine.
The output of 'lsmod' should be usefull as well.
