It's been a while, but I've now used debootstrap to get 2.6 onto said
box and can boot into Debain - hooray! However, it doesn't seem to be
recognising the CD drive...

mkb2@veri:~$ lsscsi
[0:0:0:0] disk ATA ST3500630NS 3.AE /dev/sda
[1:0:0:0] disk ATA ST3750640NS 3.AE /dev/sdb

Under Fedora, sr_mod was giving /dev/sr0 as the drive but there's no
such device under Debian (I modprobe sr_mod after booting...)

Any ideas? Thanks, Michael
