Description Bryce Nesbitt 2002-04-13 14:01:57 UTC
/etc/rc.sysinit, for no good reason, restricts seting of ide drive paramters to
media type "disk".  Often a "cdrom" will require the exact same treatment (for
example, to disable DMA).

Something like this is required:

<if [ "$hdmedia" = "disk" ]; then
>if [ "$hdmedia" = "disk" ] || [ "$hdmedia" = "cdrom" ]; then

(note that you actually have to move it a little later, after the device is

A similar tweak will be in 6.64-1; it will set parameters for any media IFF
there is a specific config file for that device.
