It sounds like you probably have an ATA/IDE controller and an ATAPI/IDE
CDROM drive (although I've never heard of one with support four floppy
drives but anything is possible).  If so, then you need the latest set
of 2.4 Driver Update release floppies.  The ATAPI/IDE CDROM support
isn't on the 2.4 FCS floppies or CDROM.
