Thanks, a lot
This seems to be an exact answer.
What I actually asked above, was the question if it is enough to just
change (using a text editor) the lines in
into something else (eg 'y' to 'm', eg that ide-scsi line) without
compiling completely a new kernel.
I'm a bit lazy to compile the whole kernel (I've done it a couple of
times years ago and I know that will take time.) I actually tried to just
load a new kernel image and was assuming that it would solve the whole
problem. That will not take any long time.
Maybe it will, I will see it today.
I know that some time this cd-rom burner has been working with this
system, (and I'm confused what have happened with the system) and just now
I'm a little bit busy to get this system hardware working relatively
completely and later I'll have time to compile the kernel to make the
system really well working.
