Thanks for the suggestion. Regrettably, this is not even an option in
the IBM BIOS. For sure, the BIOS is reporting this as CD; however, I
suspect that, for some reason, the IDE driver isn't even loading. I
guess I'll have a look at the latest kernel changes. I think some
stuff just recently went in that changes the ATA core drivers.

Best regards,
