19 You're still using the deprecated ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL disk drivers. You
20 should completely unselect that set of drivers and use the newer ones
21 in Serial ATA and Parallel ATA drivers instead.
23 Doing that will cause all of your /dev/hd* to be renamed /dev/sd*
24 including any cd/dvd drives. My /dev/cdrom is a symlink to /dev/sr0,
25 for example. The links are created automatically on the next reboot,
26 but you'll need to edit /etc/fstab to reflect the new drive names
27 before you reboot with the new kernel.
