I'm glad you mentioned that. In response to Feztaa's original, I mounted
my CD and punched the eject button. Guess what - it ejects! 8-O And the
system let's me do an ls -l and gracefully returns I/O error which persist
even after I load the CD again. They clear up when I remount.
So I figure, I have something wrong. Haven't investigated yet - just
thought I would mention it and see if anyone else has similar
I do have *both* ide-scsi and normal ATAPI support active. Figured there
might be something related to that going on. I will investigate someday,
when it achieves "critical mass".
