I also have one of these, and noticing that kernel support was weak,
(you can change CDs using the program included in the kernel source
Documentation/cdrom/ide-cd file) I added additional support. Please try
this out on your system if you have a chance, and let me know how it
works for you. It should be included in the 2.1.x kernel source... I
also adjusted the above mentioned sample program to take advantage of
these new kernel features. The patch can be found at:
