The sbpcd driver is for Creative's proprietary CD-ROM interface to a
range of drives made by Panasonic (and a variety of compatible ones),
not for IDE ones attached to one of their cards.
I've only seen ATAPI CD-ROMs going when attached to the motherboard's
IDE interface. Do you have a spare controller, or space for a second
drive on your IDE controller?
