I have had a similar setup with CD-ROM/soundcard that you described above.
What I had to do was to connect the CD-ROM cable to the secondary IDE connector
on my motherboard (right next to the hard drive connecter) and then it worked
just fine as /dev/hdc.  It did not need the sbpcd driver, just the standard
IDE one.

Hope this helps.
