I rebuilt my kernel a while ago, and my new kernel accesses the CD-ROM
just fine (as did the old).
I know very little about kernel configuration, but I notice that this
appeared in the configuration file for my new kernel:
I assume that if this line were absent, my kernel wouldn't have CD-ROM
support. And perhaps your kernel configuration is missing that line.
So here's what I'd try, if I were you:
* Re-run whichever tool you use to edit the configuration, and look
again for the ISO9660 option. It might be in a section called
* Failing that, just edit your configuration file (sorry, I forget the
file's exact name, but it's almost certainly at the top level of the
kernel source) and add that line.
