The messages you see during boot are put in /var/log/dmesg.  View that
file to see what the kernel says about the cdrom device at boot.

What kernel are you using?

According the this website <http://www.grnet.com/sc/linux/tp760xl/>
the Soundblaster modules should work.  Try doing a 'modprobe sb' as

you're using a stock kernel, that module will be there.
