Don't feel bad.  Odd hardware is the biggest frustration of Linux

Don't pick both modules.  Just pick one.  My understanding is that
either one should do, but you can read PhotoCDs with the "extended
features" one.  Make sure also that this is the nonATAPI Mitsumi
(LU-005, FX-001 or FX-001D).  It probably is.  There is an ATAPI one
(FX-001DE or something like that); also triple and quad-speed models are
ATAPI.  I'm reading all this from the 'make menuconfig' help; I don't
know if all that help text is available on an initial install.

Hope this helps.
