I think the IDE/ATAPI driver is in the std. kernels, but I may be wrong.  But
you need to say `hdd=cdrom' (or is it `hdc=ccdrom' -- do you have your CD-ROM set
up as the first (c) or second (d) secondary drive?) as a boot-time parameter (I
think this is covered in the CD-ROM HOWTO).  To get this to work every time via LILO,
read the LILO docs.  HTH.
