Description of problem:
After installing the kernel 2.4.20-18.9 I have become unable to mount any cdroms
or dvds on my cdrom drive or my dvd drive. I have not encountered this problem
with any other kernels and when I boot to an older kernel I regain the ability
to mount cdroms and dvds. The error message is no medium found.

Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:  The cdrom should have been mounted.

What CD-ROM/DVD devices, and what IDE controller does your system have, If you
aren't sure about the IDE controller attach the output of "lspci" and "dmesg"

I have an asus a7n8x deluxe rev 2.0. I have an adaptec scsi card that uses the
aic7xxx module which my dvd drive runs on and my cdrom drive is running on the
nvidia ide controller. The DVD drive is a sun 10x scsi dvd with a toshiba
chipset sd-m1401 and the cdrom drive is my burner which is a cyberdrv cw068d. I
am able to burn cds with this kernel but I also get the error that there isn't a
cd in the drive and I have to force the burn but it does work. Afterwards
however I can not mount the disk to check and see if it burned correctly. This
only occurs with this kernel and all of the other ones function fine.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
