Quote from: "evolver56k"The EIDE driver configured as "Primary/Secondary(Dual) EIDE/ATAPI Device Controller" usually works for most all PIIX controllers.Have you tried all the possible configurations for cabling and jumpers? I don't trust cable select on older hardware, especially with ide cables of unknown vintage or origin. Does the drive work (shows up in bios / other oses)?
Quote from: "evolver56k"Does the drive show up in the kernel messages after selecting the driver(s) and it gets to the white console? It could be the drive doesn't recognize the inserted media.
Quote from: "evolver56k"Can you take a picture of the screen when it panics?
Quote from: "evolver56k"Hm. It could be an incompatibility with the drive's firmware, but I've used a good selection of older and newer IDE cdrom (not dvd-rom) drives with 4.2 successfully in the past. I don't currently run 4.2 on real hardware anymore, it's easier to just use VMware these days with the vga/mouse/nic drivers available.
