Comment 1 Ron Hauptfleisch 2003-01-16 21:24:07 EST
I lowered severity to normal.  I restored the symbolic links with:
      ln -s /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom
      ln -s /dev/hdd /dev/cdrom1
and rebooted.  The devices are now working normally

I boot with ide-scsi.  Thefollowing section is from my /boot/grub/grub.conf:
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-19.8.0)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-19.8.0 ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi hdc=ide-scsi
        initrd /initrd-2.4.18-19.8.0.img

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do

closed as 'CANTFIX' on September 30, 2006. Thanks again for your help.
