I want you to know that you are not alone. I haven't been able to make
my cd drives look scsi, when I remove all ide to cd drives, my system
goes crazy and it never goes beyond IRQ-madness, without ever the kernel
getting to boot completely. In my case I am afraid that it is a
difficult hardware the culprit. If you want I can send you that image
(2.4.22, compiled with kernel package), which might work for you. I had
to revert to ide.>

That is normal (the _ - change). In general, kernels 2.4.22 and 2.4.21
have proved difficult for me. An interesting detail is that Knoppix does
the scsi change in the same machine very well. I haven't been able to
reproduce it. Any ideas, list?
