Yes, The BIOS does properly identify the CDrom Drive. Funny thing , now that I
think about it, is that Win95 could not see the secondary IDE bus or the CDROM
drive until I loaded a driver under Win95 (supplied by the MB manufacturer).
Perhaps the registers for the secondary IDE bus are sufficiently different
from the "norm" that a special driver is needed.
