sounds like one more module/kernel option is not defined
	- scsi section and
	- ata section

what is your .config file for your 2.4.22 kernel ?
	- check for each and every module and devices listed

what is the contents your lilo.conf or grub/menu.lst file 

   with lilo

   with grub, you have to have these cdrom options listed
	hdc=ide-scsi hdclun=0 

	you might have problems if you swap a hd instead
	instead of cdrw into /dev/hdc ( its not interchangeable )
