Description of problem:
On my P200 machine, the ATAPI CDROM drive is not recognized after
installation of roswell (2). I must manually load the cdrom kernel module
(for example, modprobe cdrom) for the driver to load. System works with RH
7.1. dmesg output is attached. I notice that the IDE floppy driver is
loaded though it is not needed. This differs from 7.1 behavior.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install roswell on affected machine
2.mount /mnt/cdrom (mount fails)
4.mount /mnt/cdrom (mounts succeeds)

We (Red Hat) really need to fix this before next release.
Strange. This works for me.
I cannot reproduce it either on any hardware I have tried so far
does running "depmod -ae" as root make the autoloading of ide-cd.o work again ?
'depmod -ae' does fix the problem.
depmod -ae is supposed to run at boot :(, _and_ at rpm -i time.
