Hey, I caught you cross posting. No fair, you are asking me to reply
to the same question twice! ;-)

Take out the ide2=0x180,0x386 once you installed the base system and
have PCMCIA in there. That *should* fix it. If this is anything like
my N505VE the kernel panic is from PCMCIA trying to grab your CD ROM
device after the IDE driver already picked it.

Darn Sony and it's "I'll do it my way"....
